About The Artwork

Tea 2 My work "Tea" found a new owner. I turned to the subject again. In order to increase the amount of orange, I bought a special teacup, wide and flat. I decided on a steeper view into the cup. I chose Darjeeling tea FTGFOP1, so I increased the amount of orange, to the brown tones of the picture "tea". In the background, I stayed with ultramarine blue as in "tea". The complementary contrast enhances the brightness of both colors. The steep upward glance at the incoming tea was no longer the wave-splashy appearance as I could choose in "tea". For this, the play of light reflections on the cupground was made possible to very many shades of orange! The large cup with saucer, both of fine porcelain (Rosenthal, Studio Line, Germany) underlines the elegant aspect of tea, aided by the three main colors of orange, ultramarine and white. At the sight of "tea", however, outweigh the more fundamental, more direct aspect of simplicity in terms Tee-choice (Assam, broken), cup (Ikea crockery), gaze direction with emphasis on the proportion of liveliness and browns. About the spout would also say a lot, but: who cares?

Moments: My painting is about memories of things I have experienced. The interpretation of several glances at a situation reflects a period: the moment. Duties determine our everyday life. It takes time to deal with these. There is no time to lose. This leads to life speeding up. It is difficult to step away from this. Still, some situations make us pause. Situations that surprise us, that are sudden or unexpected or that might be created, like pouring a cup of tea. These moments last longer than just a moment. Impressions of experiences are often composed of several views. This takes time. The memory of these moments is the subject of my painting. Sometimes, for example, we might look at a certain detail. More glances during these moments might lead to memories of one aspect or another. These recollected glances reflect a longer period than every individual glance. In my paintings the simultaneous depiction of several recollected glances of one moment reflect the interpretation of the memory of a longer period. In this way I condense experience. The memory and the associated choice and interpretation of several glances lead to occultation, overlapping and stringing together of these and in this way the formerly strict sequence becomes varied. During a period in which glances and the associated impressions are joined, the respective situation changes constantly. People in front of us move, we are in motion. Interpreting the observation from different positions includes temporal changes: on the one hand in our own position of observation which has changed over course of time; on the other hand in the temporal change of the situation which occurs in front of our own eyes; and, thirdly in the differing clarity of our memory of each observation. All these aspects integrate the observer of the painting into the experience of such situations and they do not just leave him in front of the image. As in most paintings the other temporal aspect lies in the way the brush leaves traces of paint over the canvas. Perception Areas These moments representing collages of glances show perception areas and areas of memories as well as their boundaries, all merging, and the gaps in between and around. All points put an emphasis on each memory of single glances and they are design elements prompted by the moments which gave shape to the image.
