The Brave New View

2022

The sky opens a view into the void and challenges our perceptional borders. Where does the boundless end and where does it begin?

Starting point of this series is a steady observation of the sky from the same line of sight. Color, light and air vary continuously over time and thus illustrate the eternity in the chaos of constant change.

This work focuses on the examination of mental and visible boundaries, attempting to conserve the moment of endlessness. A space that is not conveyed through the ordering form of physical laws, but through color, haze and attentive harmony. A world of perception that allows nature to discover an internal sound structure and enhances the sensitivity towards our surroundings.

Based on these observations, a series of knitted atmospheric paintings evolved over the course of several months.
