The blue sky is a physical phenomenon. Based on scattering of light and its reflection by the water surface of the earth, the blue sky is not palpable. It is associated with calmness, yearning, infinity, expanse and freedom. In the context of science it stands as Blue Sky Thinking for a room in which new, limitless and not aim oriented ideas can be developed.
Grown up in the Ruhr area, the blue sky has become quite important to me. The art work is the beginning of an examination of the blue sky as a visual sign, emotional state and as well as a concept for a mostly Anthropocene environment. The art work is part of a project concentrating on the dialogue between my sculptures and drawings.
The face is the a place of expression and identity and forms with the head a resonating body. My examination of identity concentrates on the personal, corporeal experience and the related development of our self. Forms emerge which go beyond the palpable body.
