Painted outdoors in the woods over a period of more than 12 month "Innerwald" is a co-production of myself as an artist, my surrounding nature, a regional forest—rain and wind, algae and moss, animals and insects—and time. So special, so exhausting, I probably won't be able to do so again.
To me, the panel is a new strand of my artistic research towards an artistic way of gaining experience and knowledge about fields usually associated with science. There are 2 more works of the künstlernatur-project uploaded here at Saatchi's. See https://www.saatchiart.com/art/Painting-Irruption-of-a-Galaxy-at-Woodland-s-Edge/777303/6337995/view and https://www.saatchiart.com/art/Painting-Guardian-Angel-Landing-in-Anthropocene/777303/4546957/view .
What is art able to contribute to the necessity of finding a balance between humanity and its violated living environment?
The strong presence of the artwork results from an artistic process in and with nature— and against it, too.
The works support is medium density fiberboard (MDF) exposed to the open for 12 month, by it is this heavy—and heavily treated by nature, warped, rims pulped broke.
It is treated properly to be sold and presented indoors—backside sanded with a throw of light grey gesso, front varnished.
There is some information about the work's process at https://malenimbestandsite.wordpress.com/
