About the artwork Da Capo 4
"Da Capo": I did a loose group of paintings referring to older pieces but changing technique, composition and view. A colourful way looking back over the years. This one has got its roots in a bundle of collages including portraits of a special kind: Back then I took newspaper and magazine parts of faces, mixed up noses, sewed in different eyes, brought mouth and ear into strange positions. Cutting, tearing, glueing, sewing - until nobody was recognisable anymore but everybody could be in there. Serveral years later I referred to these collages painting them in watercolor to bring in a totally different surface. I like, what I call it, the switch effect between the techniques. It is a varied dialogue, once again.
