Collage: Paper, Paint, Resin, Household, Environmental on Wood.
'Mondgesicht' (Face of the moon) is a piece very close to my heart. The first decision to make was choosing the color of the frame, which is made of solid wood, museum-style. Being a green lover, I chose the leafy spray paint and added sparkle with gold glitter paint. I used varies elements which started off with the the full moon, surrounded by a fantasy object similar to a satellite. From there the piece grew organically. I wanted to keep the green scheme going and so added parts of a 'grass' mat which has a wonderful rough texture and adds to the 3D-feel of the plastic sunflowers on the upper right. The whole art work is meant to be a 'see and feel' piece. The friendly character is backed by the smiling moon who is sought to lighten the mood of the viewer. The color explosion of yellow and orange is a counterpart to the more calming green. As a base I used a vintage english-greek dictionary from 1896, which adds to the novelty and invites to go close and discover. At a closer look the viewer will also notice the many details the collage has to offer. Un-boring and explorative. That is, actually, what I, as an artist, always thrive for. To tempt ones imagination and to take one on a journey in a colorful, happy world. Dream on!
