Figurative

Arguably most of what is of importance to us humans can be found in the faces of the people around us. I.e. love, hate, pain, bliss, ecstasy. I only feel I met someone truly, after locking eyes for some seconds, peeked into their soul. In the series Idols, I use the faces of people, who hold qualities this world of today desperately needs, as canvases for random abstract worlds of lines to highlight the beauty of human oneness, diversity, and imperfection.

BOUNDARIES OF SELF 
Indian ink on paper

2021 120x220cm (sold)

The drawing investigates the boundaries of self in time and space. Where do we start and end? What am I what is other? Looking closely, I fail to find the line. The child is Andreas as a child. The grown-up is Andreas as of 2021. Am I both of these, or one, or none? 

Created at a 6-week Residence in Greenpoint, New York City, exhibited at Noosphere arts.

Part of a group of works, see the performance Boundaries of self.

A celebration of a person I loved, and love. Of her love. Of years we spent together. Of times she held me.
Of her clarity and direction.

Of a new chapter.

MARA AND ME

Not meeting my demons, the pain and release of trying to make peace with them. A therapy, an allegory and an homage to the tale of the Buddha and his enlightenment under the Bodhi tree.
