On my trip to the Biennale in Venice, I was not only able to see gazillion of Art pieces, but also to create some myself on the road.
All these people, places and conversations that I was able to witness, needed to be reflected somehow. That´s the reason why I always carry my sketchbook and aquarelle paint with me, so I´m able to capture, put notes and make some portraits. I also love to produce photographic work in cities I travel to and when you meet some familiar faces from Berlin on the way to the Pavilions, one thing leads to the other…
The process of getting creative in public spaces always fascinated me, you change the environment through the intervention and you take the inspiration with you. Where I paint or photograph I feel home very quickly.
In this series of collages, I worked with both, my original sketches from the days in Venice and the photo series I produced with Lilli, that I photographed all around the city each time with another element of the surrounding, that I painted on location on her skin. In combination with the drawings I hope I can make you feel, how joyful, beautiful and inspiring this trip to Venice has been to me.
