ANDY WARHOL’S PENCIL AND PAPER

Dear readers, sorry for being absent for such a long time! Almost two month since my last post…I was working on some various projects. Some to earn money and some others to become “rich and famous”…
Beside working my ass off we bought a wonderful piece of land – which took a lot of time. I’m so happy about this, you can’t imagine! It’s pretty close to Berlin near one of the most beautiful lakes around Berlin! No one cared about during the past 20 years – so it was like a jungle when we first saw it – trees and squirrels celebrated a lot of parties there (and I really hope they won’t stop)! That was the main reason why I fell in love instantly, beside a little house which was build in the twenties or thirties and a huge shed! I’m planning to build my studio out there in the woods – silence, lovely flowers and trees are growing, birds are singing, no internet, – best preconditions to concentrate on work! I’m gonna post a few pictures as soon as it is showable. Now, finally, a further contribution to you my dear readers!

CLICKETY CANDY: These unique still-live polaroids were taken by Andy Warhol between 1977 and 1983. He referred to his Polaroid Big Shot camera, which he purchased in 1970, as his “pencil and paper.” A selection of 70 Polaroids was on view at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. What a pity that I haven’t seen the exhibition! You can find more here. Hope you like them! Happy wednesday!

EMBROIDERED WORKS

QUICK CANDY: are the things that have caught my eye somehow, while I’m very busy.
I am always fascinated by embroidered works! Why? Because I would never be patient enough to create these kind of works – I am one of the most impatient humans on this planet! Maybe I should start to embroider somewhen – just to learn how to be patient? More works here!
Hope you are all doing well!

THE SAUGATUCK ART COLONY

Hi friends, sorry for my absence – it just felt so good to shut down the computer and work without the influences of the internet a few days! The Saugatuck Art Colony was one of the first posts I did on this blog – I still love the summery, relaxed and creative atmosphere in the pictures! They’re kind of become my role models when there is a lot of pressure and work. Looking at these pictures always reminds me to work with a little more relaxation. I wish you all a happy weekend!
