Painting: priming white, chalk, charcoal, oil paint on Wood, Other.
In German, O.T. succeeded by a number is the equivalent of Untitled #... This is different in this very case. O.T. stands for "Offene Tür"—open door—and it is about a gray and very encapsulated town nearby. Adding color to my favorite grays I found some apertures (like hopes). Now the central bus stop opens to the surrounding world, the light. And by this, heavens open vice versa. What a moment!
The work's support is characterful, half an old sandwich board door, roughly sanded and treated with layers of priming white at front and sides.
A beautiful custom-made frame of natural, untreated pine is completing the work. The frame was done on purpose for a local exhibition project and may have gained less than a few tiny signs of use by this. It doesn't add to the artwork's price and is considered as a gift.
The work weight is 18 kilo. It needs a solid wall and two properly fixed screws for hanging. Gallery hanging with rails, wire and standard holders is fine, too.
