This body of work evolved from the GRADATION paintings, taking the color field paintings to a narrative realm. The elusive quality and fleeting, transitory nature of clouds has ever since made the sky a projection field for all sorts of phenomena of the incomprehensible.
Tapping mostly into literary works from 18th and 19th century describing clouds as rebuses or silent scriptures of the sky, as well as using systematic scientific compendiums that were created in the late 19th and early 20th century and incorporated photography primarily as a recording and documenting method, this body of work aspires to create a painterly, visual text reflecting timeless human yearning.
The opening of the 2010 solo exhibition at renowned Hamburg project space and gallery “Westwerk” was introduced with a performance by friend and fellow artist, Piotr Nathan.
