small ones
For my exhibition, I have painted over one hundred small paintings that together form a sort of half-installation, a little excerpt of (my) life: images of the surrounding world – near and far, experienced and dreamed, memories of childhood, food pictures and, as always, small or even “insignificant” details, bystanders, yet so central, like now as an important part, plants, mainly weeds as well as a starry sky and skulls. People who are close to me, a key to my childhood home, Rome and a carrot. This is like a middle-aged person’s interim report of life, the past and the present, my paintings.

Of Cardboard
First my paintings turned into cardboard works. There was a matchbox and rolls as well as other cardboard works. Then paintings on cardboard. Holy ones, a mountain, industrial areas as well as the Red Phantom maintaining order in society. Together these form an entity of works in the space.
