"The past is not dead. It's not even past."
William C. Faulkner (1897-1962)

The painting is from my series INNOCENCE. Central topic is light: brightness as a symbol that stands for the beginning, the morning, the pureness and birth, the ease and light-heartedness. In other words: innocence. And this innocence is beautiful, perfect, immortal. This innocence is emotional, it touches and is a promise. Mostly the series works with very different yellow and red colours. We are talking about affirmative paintings as a stark contrast to the (daily) madness and confusions around us. These paintings are my answer to all the negative events in this world and it correlates with my credo: be hot, be cold but never be lukewarm. Today is already past, and we have to fight against the gloom before melancholia will drown us. We should offer resistance against the inner and outer debris fields – we can be warriors of the light (within the meaning of Paulo Coelho) and we are able to design our fate in an intensive and positive kind. We’re standing back to back and defending our well standpoints. We are making mistakes. But we are fighting.

This piece is a true LARGE-SIZED PAINTING. For a large-scale, aesthetic and colourful impression on your wall AND as my authentic and personal artwork with an artistic subsurface message. The painting is for sale as solitaire and as the right part of the triptych THE LIVING AND THE DEAD.
I use exclusively oil and acrylic colours, canvas and wooden frames in a professional museum quality. The painting wears my signature on the front and is signed, entitled and dated on the backside. Deliberately the sides (about 4,5 cm wide) are not part of the painting and show the black-painted canvas (beautiful contrast). The painting is ready to hang (on the backside: high-quality iron plates with metal inserts and nylon rope for gallery use), unframed and doesn’t need a frame or any additional surface treatment. The piece will be safely shipped in a custom wooden crate. It will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and a cover letter.
Please note: In context pictures are not necessarily to scale and are for illustrative purposes only. If you have any questions about this painting or any other piece, feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
Thanks so much for taking an interest in my work.
