Abstract collages made with chinapaper

Fascination of depth in paintings

I usually make all collages from very fine china paper, which I color and paint myself with a wide variety of colors. After it has dried, I tear out the parts of the paper that I particularly like and rearrange them on the picture carrier. The structure of the paper is very fine and permeable. This means that even when the paper is pasted over, the picture below still shines through. This creates a great spatial depth that captivates me again and again. Collaging is a very loving process, because I keep touching the picture by smoothing out the respective paper – or, to put it better, “smoothing it out”. I finally cover some of the works with a fine layer of wax, which acts like a soft focus on the picture and invites you to touch the picture. This creates a complex, deep and coherent aesthetic overall work in an elaborate process.
