My new project “somnambule flowers” investigates different signi-fications of flowers and mushrooms in relation to content and form. Exploring diverse symbolic meanings in both cultural history as well as personal biography I reflect upon the ambivalence of our existence. The open ended working method of the specific artistic process inspired the poetic term somnambule. As in my former series “butterflies – I saved an Admiral’s life” the encounter of formative influences of beauty and death, the equilibrium of Eros and Thanatos, is important for my work.

“Still Point”, with Four Square Fine Arts

A curated off site exhibition  at Clerkenwell Gallery in London of works by internationally acclaimed German artists represented by Four Square Fine Arts, including Eberhard Ross, Thomas Zika, Dirk Salz, Harald Schmitz-Schmelzer whose work encapsulates the theme from these famous lines by TS Eliot.

4th – 8th November 2014

“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”
Burnt Norton TS Eliot (1935)
