VIEW IN MY ROOM
Printmaking: Woodcut, Oil, Ink on Paper.
The endlessness of the sky and sea provoke us to consider our own limitations: The horizon is a limit we can never reach, that constantly suggests to us its distance. At the same time these images are also projections of our dreams and aspirations, suggested to unparalleled distance and depth. But it is only the glimpse into the distance that truly opens up our view to the inside, to the width and boundlessness within ourselves. Due to their delimitation, these images also refer to the painting „The monk by the sea“ by Caspar David Friedrich, on which Heinrich von Kleist remarked, ‚the observers eyelids would be cut away‘.
