No Tribute To Pollock

2016

Those are stick figures relating to each other, many engaging in sportive activity or watching, walking, talking, grouping... Painting has a sandy mixed media background.
 

Mech Town

Seems abstract but on closer perception it's a City in the Skies held together by mechanic construction

Journeys

2015

It's about journeys we take. If you take a closer look, you find castles, buidlings, landscapes and scenes within the lower part of the painting.

Oma

2014

My grandmother died this year. The days after her death whenever I saw brimstone butterflies I had to think of her. As if her soul had been able to ride the butterfly and enjoying its gay path -  visiting once more before eventually going home.

oT

2012

If sub atomic particles would be square, which they most probably are not, I think you might find an arrangement like this, maybe, somewhere - of course they most probably would't have any color either :-)

music 2012

2012

- there is a slash in the canvas. It's NOT broken, but music can't be confined! (actually, the canvas did break; this is how the painting started out ;-))

the beauty of shapes

the view

2012

The 4 paintings, 6"x6" each, can be hung separately or together. They are supposed to open up a view to different scenes, landscapes, cityscapes. I thought it might be nice, if you are in a small space, to have the opportunity to venture out through the windows in the little paintings. The paintings were created for a small NY apartment.

Chilean Miners

2011

Don't forget the awesome rescue and the human drama of the coal workers trapped in the mine for months!

everyday people

2011

...doing everyday things - everyday...

Fukushima

2011

Earthquake, tsunami, radiation from the damaged power plants - the people are trying and working hard to keep it together...

Revolution

2011

Upheaval in North Africa - peoples call for freedom - a matter of human rights - they gathered courage - and momentum - world is watching - many die - for a better future.

Tornado

2011

The US was hit by the worst tornadoes since many years in April 2011 - climate's changing...

Jazz

2010

Jazz is what happens, when you carefully position notes to create spaces that are filled with music - in the listener's head. It's the spaces, that make it come alive, the 'in-between'. Careful use of primary colors! Let the colors play around each other. The instruments are just tools, secondary to the music. Jazz fills dull spaces with life, brings light. It's passion! It's eternal and bridges gaps.

Dodging the Bullet

Cool Blue Magic

2010

I finished my paintings on yellow, red and blue. A big uni colored shape and a woman interpreting the color through shape. Long hours of trying to grasp and put on canvas what I had in mind... Obnoxiously Yellow was finished in no time and I had a pretty good idea of what to do with Cool Blue Magic.  Red Hot was really the most difficult, because what's hot for a woman? Some think big butts are hot others not. It took me a night of insomnia and morning struggle with the canvas to get beyond body parts and focus on shape as I had done for the other two. The essence of 'hot' is a certain rhythm rather than a thing. It is where music meets painting. Same is true for the other two paintings of the series. Hear the obnoxiously yellow tune? or the cool blue magic? I do...

Alien 2

2009

The painting expresses the feeling of not quite fitting in. The gray men are just slightly different and even though they successfully take part in everyday life, they're left with a feeling of alienation - and, if there has been any doubt, the gray men have always been among us, even fighting on our side. You wouldn't even recognize them. But they - they know who they are.

Alien 1

The painting expresses the feeling of not quite fitting in. The gray men are just slightly different and even though they successfully take part in everyday life, they're left with a feeling of alienation.

Creativity at Night

2009

When she's sitting in the dark, she's still full of colors and ideas, no matter how dull it's all around. She's sharing the spirit of the first creator, who you might find hanging there, if you turn the painting upside down.

Colors, Shapes & Sentiments

2009

Consists of 3x4 1'x1' canvases. Each depicts a state of mind or 'sentiment' using abstract shape/color. Reading them left to right top to bottom, you should be able to discover an progressing story

the bed pt. 4/4

2009

Again a predominant use of reds, but again in different hues and character of shapes and this time adding some blues and purples. Changing the sentiment once more.

the bed pt 1/4

2009

what can happen in a bed? Did create 4 scenarios, each depicting a certain sentiment, connected with the scene. Attempt to find the appropriate language of shapes/colors corresponding to the sentiment

the bed pt. 2/4

2009

Using almost the same color sceme (minus the green) as in pt 1, though in different amounts and in completely different shapes to change the atmosphere. A universal language?

the bed pt. 3/4

2009

As in pt. 2, I had to sacrifice some aspects of 'good composition' to create a certain sentiment.

need to get out

2009

How does the sentiment look in some soldier's head, during a battle at night?

and life goes on (as long as it does)
