La Fête Galante 6, 2024, h 50 x w 36 cm (h 19.8 x w 14.2 inch), analog and hand cut collage, paper on paper

I depict the series La Fete Galante at a time when there is a lot of unrest in the world. Through the treatment of the theme, I express the wish for more respect, grace, courtesy and peace-lovingness, in small and large. By focusing on dance as art in movement and lightness of being and placing it in the spotlight, I try to visually push the darkness into the background. In reality, I actually increase the contrast, which creates drama and reveals the vulnerability of this cosplay.

La Fête Galante 5, 2024, h 50 x w 36 cm (h 19.8 x w 14.2 inch), analog hand cut collage, paper on paper
.
Since the summer of 2023 I have been working on a new series of works of art entitled “La Fête Galante”.
I recently completed the fifth collage work in this series.
Fete galante paintings were an important part of the rococo art period, in the French 18th century.
💃🕺🏻💕
The lush outdoor environments of fête galante paintings were often borrowed from paintings from previous periods.
Venetian paintings from the 16th century and Dutch paintings from the 17th century were particularly popular for this.

Drawing on paper, no.542023, 2017, h 43,5 x w 43,5 cm (h 17.1 x w 17.1 inch), fine liner, pen, felt-tip pen, adhesive tape on six pieces of paper, glued together to form a whole.

Mon petit poney 🐴🎠🧲

I was working on a nice assignment at the time. An interested collector wanted to buy three works of art from me. When I read the book “Les trois musquetaires” (The Three Musketeers), 1844, by the French writer Alexandre Dumas I felt that I had an interesting story. I especially found their famous motto: “One for all and all for one” catchy. Beautifully drawn illustrations by Maurice Leloir provided a good picture of the times. The three musketeers usually traveled by horse. Here I drew another musketeer on horseback, in nice bright colors. I gave the work a subtitle in French: “Mon petit poney”.

La Fête Galante 4, 2024, h 19.8 x w 14.2 inch, analog hand cut collage, paper, colored pencil on paper
. 
Since summer 2023 I take life a little lighter … ☺️ and worked on a new series of collage works entitled “La Fête Galante”.
The Fête Galante paintings were a genre within the French 18th century rococo period of art.
I especially like Watteau’s mixing of theater life with real life, so that the boundary between the two is completely blurred.
The lightness of being, the relaxed atmosphere, the costumes and the appreciation for intimacy: I find it all very appealing and tried to catch this joie de vivre, this lifestyle of la vie en rose in my latest art.🌹😘

Recently Disturbed Earth, 1995, h 91,4 x w 122 x d 7 cm (h 36 x w 48 x d 2.8 inch), collage of adhesive film on wood panel
 
This is an older work of art that I made based on photos from the media, a method that I regularly use.
 
The title of the work is in part a reference to the abilities of modern screen and surveillance technologies to uncover – via satellite, drone and other screening processes – places and locations where earthly ground might indicate evidence of being significantly tampered with by human actions in a way that the technologically unaided human eye cannot easily detect. The detection of disturbed earth is a sign that something is not as it should be, that a systemic effort has been made to disrupt and then disguise the disruption.
 
The earth is disturbed in multiple ways: by the hidden mass graves, by the still non-deactivated minefields, as well as by the unregulated cutting down of the trees – a process of mass deforestation that jeopardises the natural ecosystem, as is the case in many parts of the world.

Manual collage and drawing on paper *5442023, 2019, h 16.5 x w 12.6 inch, acrylic paint pen, felt pen, fine liner, adhesive tape, paper on paper
 

I really enjoy making collages. I often make them in a small size so that you can easily make them on a table. Working on a small, table format also gives a lot of freedom to try out different techniques and work with various materials. I also find it a challenge to see whether you can push boundaries or conduct research on, for example, concepts of aesthetics. How do you know when a work is finished and, is that a worthwhile pursuit?
How personal do I want to make my work? Do I strive for something new and unique to surprise myself again?
In terms of content, during this period I was busy completing a series of fourteen large collage works made of adhesive film on drawing polyester on light box with the title Parable of the Sower.
