This piece was started in New Mexico, it used to be called ''East meets West'.It was a time of transition as I moved from a rural high desert environment to a small island in Thailand. If you look closely you'll detect imprints of oak leaves on the left, textured side, symbolizing the West, as the right side stands for the East. The balloon used to be a moon and the background was a deep blue. Over the years I kept adding layers upon layers until the Moon became a balloon. the sky changed form blue to red to this yummy blueish hue.
Shipping & Returns
Based in: Thailand
Born and raised in Germany. Formal education at Fachoberschule fuer Gestaltung, Fachhochschule fuer visuelle Komminikation in Aachen, Germany.
Extensive travels through East and South East Asia. Lived in India off and on for seven years, Lived and worked inLaguna Beach, California and Santa Fe, New Mexico, US for about 20 years, living and working in Thailand since 2006.
After about a decade of exclusively working on silk ( with dyes,) I've been focusing mainly on working on canvas with primarily acrylic, latex paints and inks on canvas.
To put it in a few words- I constantly strive to re-invent the way I paint. Living in Asia has strongly altered my style from living in the South/West of the US. From the High Desert to the ocean. From 7000 feet to 0 feet. From dry to wet.
Now my domicile is 200m from the Gulf of Siam in the jungle- like surrounding. I mainly work out in the open.
I'm running a small paint school at my studio as well, Thailand. In between doing my own work I have students from all over the world from age 4 to 75 and any age in between. In fact, that's how I get inspired amongst other things. Working and learning with people from all walks of life from all ages from all countries.
