Eternity with birds and ants
Eternity with birds and ants

Inspired by the eternity symbol. The symbol is painted on a wall, which dissolves into sky. The ants crawl into the symbol and change into birds.

The Ardennes – Bourscheid Luxembourg
The Ardennes – Bourscheid Luxembourg

A simple landscape taken from a photo I took near by the Bourscheid castle in the Ardennes. This photo of the painting was taken by night. I will include a photo taken during the day to show the variation of colours.

Three Times Change
Three Times Change

This is all about change: paper boats change to swans to the left and floating candles to the right. Confetti rains down to show that change can be a positive thing. I chose a sepia colour wash to create a sense of nostalgia for the past. This work is inspired by the art of Caspar David Friedrich and also by a memorable holiday on Rügen Island in the Baltic sea.

Here I´ve used similar forms, changing the size and weightiness of objects in relatively equal parts.

 

 

 

 

 

Paper Boats
Paper Boats

This painting is inspired by the line: O wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind? by Percy B. Shelly. It will be one of about 10 of my works on show at the Galerie Walfer, April 24th (opening night/Vernissage 18:30 – 20:00) until 03 May 2015. Snacks, wine served.

Cat, Bird, Cage
Cat, Bird, Cage

Thought it would be interesting when predator metamorphosises into prey. It could also be a pointer towards pursuing too much of a good thing.

To Survivors Of WW1 and WW2
To Survivors Of WW1 and WW2

A small piece dedicated to two major world changing events. The flowers push through the barbed wire and thrust into the clear sky. My feelings are, that what ever happens, life carries on at a relentless pace.

Don’t Be Afraid
Don’t Be Afraid

A circular painting inspired by South African beadwork, quotations by famous South Africans, insects and plant life. From below, the insects scuttle or fly into the centre of a magnified daisy, from outwards into the sky burst birds, balloons and seeds.
