Working on paper, I prefer the technique of collage. The more direct way of cutting and gluing compliments the painting in oil. My collages sometimes function as studies for future paintings, but can just as well stand alone. Recently I experimented with a new technique: gum printing. The results are a starting point for new work.
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.
