PAINTING | PHOTOPAINTING | ZEPPELIN | RUST OBJEKTS
As painting surfaces I use stretcher frames, nettle fabric, different types of paper, wood and MDF boards. My working method is very experimental. It always excites me to discover new things and try new things. Most of my paintings go through a long working process. They are made of many layers of material, paint and glaze. The layers of paint give them a very special luminosity.
“You only have to want to and believe in it, then you will succeed.” Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin (1838 – 1917)
I also work collected rust finds into rust objects. I like to make the background with gray metal powder, which turns into a warm, shimmering brown during the rusting process. The metal powder is made to rust directly on the image carrier. How the rust surfaces will develop, I can not plan in advance. This is a very exciting process. This is also how my rust paintings on canvas are created.
