even though it was rather quite on the blog, I had been busy for several months in a row now. Next to the usual I took part in a three exhibitions, more or less at the same time. I was more into drawing and building paper objects than into animation this time, but don’t worry: there will be new animated projects soon.
One of those exhibitions was an awesome boost for my self-confidence, and another one was my first solo show since last December:
fragile | Paperworks
I’d like to share some impressions from the show and the night of the opening reception with you today. – So, pictures! It was rather full on the night of the opening reception… I’m always surprised how much I’m enjoying myself in such a situation!
For the exhibition I made a series of A5-sized drawings. I tried to work more intuitively and just let things happen. – I just love them, they contain everything that is important to me and my work: bright colours, words, stories, a bold graphic style…
I also made a few new paper objects for this exhibition: an organic, abstract structure which can be found in some of the drawings and on the invitation card (see above) as well:
And 31 tiny houses, The city of abandoned artworks:
When I planned the exhibition, I knew that I wanted to work with that pillar. I thought it would be nice to have little houses around it like a tiny village grown at a cliffy landscape. They didn’t look so great when empty, and I had some spare artwoks that I didn’t like. I cut them into small pieces and placed them into the houses. Even though they’d been unloved, they did find their way into a gallery. Which is pretty much a win-win situation.
You still have the chance to see the exhibition until November 17, 2012: Opening times are Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 12 a.m. to 4 p.m.

I hope you all are alright? I send you lots of love!
