MOST RECENT WORK
I am teaming up with Universal Edition who will publish and distribute all my compositions. They will launch a brand new system very soon and I am happy to be a testimonial. My compositions will be available from autumn.
February meant going back to smaller sized aquarelles after quite a few large format abstract paintings. Gold became the red thread throughout the mediums, new shapes and gestures have been explored.
2020 demands for new ways of expression, new formats, new gestures. I doubled my canvas sizes, switched the brush for new tools and use layers upon layers of paint to create works with more depth.
Transformation I (2020), acrylic on canvas, 120x160cm
Ausbruch I (2020), acrylic on canvas, 100x150cm
Ausbruch II (2020), acrylic on canvas, 100x80cm
Finished my commissioned composition "Calamitas" for orchestra and choir on the last day of the year.
It will premiere February 7th in Cluj, Romania, performed by the philharmonic orchestra and choir of Cluj, conducted by Gottfried Rabl.
Another set of aquarelles that use salt, ink and pearlescent pigments. I decided to use a small format in order to concentrate shapes and textures into their essence.
A1219NIII - A1219NVIII (2019), aquarelle, salt, ink/pencil and pearlescent pigment on cold pressed paper, 14,8 x 10,5 cm
Five of these works were created during a stay in Germany. As usual I transformed my hotel room into a little studio. The last piece was created after my return home.
D1219NI - D1219NV & A1219NI (2019), aquarelle and ink on cold pressed paper, 24 x 32 cm
In addition to the use of gold and other pearlescent pigments I have introduced salt to my aquarelle works.
A1119NI - A1119NVIII (2019), aquarelle and salt on cold pressed paper, various sizes
October & November 2019
Shifting back from a completely abstract use of oil to a more figurative one. The strokes have become thicker, eventually changing from a utilisation of brushes to knife.
- Mouvement destructif 081119 (2019), oil on canvas, 100x80cm
- Sarabande mystique 261119 (2019), oil on canvas, 100x80cm
These five compositions have premiered this year. Dreams of Lunacy and Archipelago in Romania, Static Pointillism, Reset and Rhizom in Vienna, Austria at Wien Modern.
The covers are aquarelles I made this year.
