Fly with me I am free and light. Take to the air with me. All ballast runs down. I am confident in myself.
"The whole body, from wing tip to tip, is nothing but thought," says Jonathan. "Spirit in a more visible form. Break through the limitations of your thinking, and you will also break the bonds of the body..." (p.77 from the philosophical story by Richard Bach: The Seagull Jonathan)
"Flying". The running of the paint and the flowing hair of the protagonist make the painting a moving painting. The view of the dancer from above suggests that the viewer is already in the air and is in flight himself.
The Dimensions 437 series is my diploma thesis at the Academy of Fine Arts. It consists of 7 paintings showing two women with long black hair. Diana, the Native American woman, grounded in strength and feminine strength. Yutong, the dancer, light and flexible, always on the move. For me, both women stand for female expression. I got my inspiration for this series from my dreams. I dreamed of the title and immediately went about implementing it.
In all seven paintings the color phthalo blue dominates. In addition, I set myself different challenges in each of the pictures: an exciting perspective or the transparency of the clothing. In some of the pictures I continued to paint over the edge of the painting.
There is also a film about this special series of paintings that was shot at the Academy of Fine Arts. It shows the exhibition of the Dimensions 437 series and a musical as well as a dance performance with the two painted women, me, my art partner Alex Dolphin and the Improwiese, a music collective of innovative musicians.
