PASTELPAINTINGS, the waters of Venice, mixed media on paper
 
2018 / 2019 
During my first visit to Venice and second this year, the floating sea-weeds, the colors of the Lagoon and the many Islands around the city captured my attention and where inspiring for this new series. Its not the ancient city but the influences of nature and the atmosphere of the waters around this city I gave form. At my first visit in 2018 I saw close tot the central station lines on the wall with marks about the rising waters through the years and what's going to happen without interference.
These study-trips to Venice weren't visits coming out of the blue. Several years ago I studied through art history-books the daily life of the inhabitants during the Settecento. Learning more about the history and the many famous artists like Veronese and Tiepolo.
