Besides painting, I regularly work on paper, trying to elaborate on an idea. Collage is a technique that I use quiet often. I like the playfulness and direct way of cutting and gluing.

My collages sometimes function as studies for future paintings, but can just as well stand alone. When I look for a special atmosphere in working on paper, I make a gum print.

The prints I use as a starting point to draw, paint or make a collage with.


Gum print
Ode an Herta

This serie of collages is inspired by the work of Herta Müller.
I am a fan not only of her books, but also of the playful collages she makes. Using text and image in a unique way.
