small-sized works, primarily pencil
on paper, ca. 29 x 22 cm.
“....on my travels through Marocco and Tunesia, I have always picked up paper from the ground: torn playing cards, pages from school notebooks, cigarette packets and more. Later, I glued these found objects into a sketchbook, integrating it into my drawings until it became part of them – in this way, I created picture diaries. I adopted this process and used/use it to create my “small works,” in which intense drawing, marks and hatching, and inserted vouchers, receipts, tickets, etc., fuse into one image. A type of collage technique that I combine with drawing. I repeatedly rework, tear and mark mundane, everyday documents until, bereft of their sterility, they unite with the drawing and background to become new pictorial events.”
