Gouache 2
Gouache on etchings

Normally etching is a technique to multiply identical prints. For the artist they also offer the possibility
to paint a series with an identical background without beginning always from the bottom. I use this
combination of painting and etching to have the same stage for a line of different stories.

Miscellaneous

Here you see some more paintings based on etchings, the first group related to Tuscany, the other
to the Baltic Sea. The last one proves how fast actuality can change. It shows the then German
secretary of environment, who was doubted to handle the problems. In the meantime you won’t
probably know the secretary’s name any more, but still the problems.

Dürer Paraphrases

The wonderful environments of Dürer’s alter paintings gave me the idea to remove the figures of the
Holy Family or the three magicians and fill their place with motives, which still are  related to the
religious origin, but connected with our age and its problems.
