• Blick aufs Meer

The series Blick aufs Meer (Views onto the Sea) captures various moods of the sea — serenity, waves, sunsets, expansiveness, mist and more. The rough shores of the Isle of Skye in Scotland, the sunny view along Portugal's Atlantic coast and the never ending horizon of the Baltic Sea in Germany all provided inspiration for the prints.
         The installation comprises three prints, each assembled from eight individually printed sheets of paper, glued together to form one stripe. I used textiles and paper as printing materials to capture the ethereal, occasionally misty textures where the sky and water meld with the land.

  • Highlands I-IV

The series Highlands I-IV emerged from a holiday in Scotland. Observing the quickly changing weather, I got inspired to capture the interplay of mist, light and shadow of the landscape in a series of linocuts. Each graphic employs identical plates, yet the application of pressure, the quantity of color, and the sequence of printing vary.

  • Title: Highlands I-IV
  • Year: 2023
  • Technique: linocut on paper
  • Size: 29×18 cm
  • Edition:  5, 10, 5, 2

  • Morgen I-V

The series Morgen I-V (Morning I-V)  draws its inspiration from the dynamic weather of the Scottish Highlands. These varying atmospheres are captured through the use of both woodcut and linocut. The wood's natural grain stays visible while the lino adds detail to the composition.

  • Pilsen

The Pilsen series captures different views of the city. The prints are the result of my Czech-German artist-in-residency programme at the DEPO2015 in Pilsen, Czech Republic. The architecture and riverside were the main inspiration in the search for motifs.

The results of my residency were presented at the exhibition of the Treffpunkt festival 2022 in Pilsen.
