GENESIS
The sky and the clouds were always of big fascination to humanity and the religions. Until the 18th century they represented the border between the “earthly” and the “heavenly” in the religious art in Europe the clouds. Saints were thus often pictured on the clouds. Above all artists as Alfred Stieglitz, Ferdinand Hodler and Gerhard Richter were inspired by the ever-changing beauty of the clouds and created many works of art in relation with this topic. Wolfgang Goethe also studied cloud formations - not only from a meteorological point of view - and described amongst others their immaterial character as follows: “Or gently wafted to the realms of rest, Find a sweet welcome in The Father's breast.” (In: Kurt Badt, John Constable’s clouds, Berlin 1960) But also science is providing natural scientific answers that allow us to understand what is happening. But isn’t there more? Don’t the sky and the clouds have influence on our mood? The snap-shot of the inapprehensible, eternal and unpredictable in the seemingly endless vastness of the skies but also the longing for calm and the “godly” are my topics in the framework of the “skies”. The beholder is welcome to make his very own discoveries and experiences with my photographs. “Look at skies and you will find your soul” (Wolfgang Sagmeister) Technische Daten: Limitierte Auflage von 17 Stück + 3 Artist Proofs Print Format: 59,8 cm x 44,2 cm Pigmentdruckverfahren (giclée) auf Hahnemühle digital fineart photo rag® ultra smooth 305 g/m² 100% Baumwolle • weiß.
