Und wenn du selber wachsen willst, nutze dich an deinen Kämpfen ab; sie allein führen zu Gott.
Dies ist der einzige Weg, den es auf Erden gibt.
Und so geschieht es, daß dich dein Leid wachsen macht, wenn du es bejahst.“
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

 

The elements of the collages come from years of collected books and prints of plant representations in photography and painting. The elements are cut out and reassembled and glued in a lengthy process. Among the cut-out papers are dried real flowers, drawings by the artist, old stamps, scraps, wax seals. This work can be seen as a counter-pool to the activity as graphic designer. In graphic design, everything is digital and disappears when you quit the computer program. The design is subject to constant correction and must be editable at all times. The collages, on the other hand, are painstakingly handmade. They arise without planning and are irreversible. Once glued, the motifs are no longer changeable. The very clean cut and the artistic composition to a new arrangement, is very time consuming. And time is essential if you want to grow.
