Art Description

Painting: Oil, Gesso, Pastel, Black & White, Paper on Paper, Other.

CURRENTLY ON SHOW - THEREFORE TEMPORARY NOT FOR SALE THROUGH SAATCHI

This work got his inspiration from one of my all time favorite movies:
Der Himmel über Berlin (Wings of Desire) by Wim Wenders


This work is mounted on a wooden panel. It started with a portrait in oil. A collage of pages from a book was applied. The abstract and text was made with black and white gesso and pastel. The fluorescent orange is tape. It's based on a poem:

Lied Vom Kindsein – Peter Handke

Als das Kind Kind war,
ging es mit hängenden Armen,
wollte der Bach sei ein Fluß,
der Fluß sei ein Strom,
und diese Pfütze das Meer.

Als das Kind Kind war,
wußte es nicht, daß es Kind war,
alles war ihm beseelt,
und alle Seelen waren eins.
