Descrizione Opera / Biografia

The latest one of my FACADES, No. 40, just finished! It’s the window of a bar in Berlin, the painting is based on a photo of my son Karl and his girlfriend I took in 2020.
Currently, I’m working in the series Facades, focussed on the presentation of randomly observed everyday life in an urban context. Window scenes, first photographically captured in passing, throw a glimpse into the lives oft the anonymous inhabitants, on the border between private and public space.
In the wake of the pandemic and lockdowns, my series Facades has gained new topicality – unintentionally: The private space or environment, the situation of living took on a much more existential importance for people all over the world.
The motifs for the paintings I found in different cities of Europe and North- and Southamerica, like London, Paris, Venice, Cracow, Berlin, Frankfurt, Tallinn, Santiago de Chile, Medellín, New Orleans and Mainz, my hometown.
