Good morning Patrick,
The Gallery Rother will show three very different works from me, which are all created in my gold and sand collage-technique.
An architectural work inspired by the 'Jenga Tower' in New York, one of my favorite buildings in the Big Apple. New York always reminds me of my big dream to make it in the art world and my first solo show there in 2017.
The other two works are inspired by nature and are more abstract. The piece ‘Pilz‘ is derived from a mushroom structure that grew up a tree outside my studio. I am a great admirer of mushrooms, as without them biologically no life on earth would have been possible.
The work 'Kraut' is a tribute to my homeland the Stuttgart region. Besides Porsche and Mercedes-Benz, my region is known for growing the best cabbage. There are even villages that have a 'Kraut-festival' every year where you can try all the different varieties.
Did you know that Christopher Columbus probably wouldn't have discovered America without cabbage? Because the sailor's disease scurvy could only be defeated by the high vitamin C content in sauerkraut. I also love its aesthetics and for me it could become the next superfood.

Take the time you need, I look forward to hearing from you.
