surreal collage

The series SURREAL COLLAGE is the casual getting-together between reality and dreams.
In the artistic creation, I am completely free of reason and logic, so that the artistic subconscious and the spontaneous mood can take control.

About the series “INTERVENCIONES”
The earth is undergoing turbulent times. Migration is a daily phenomenon of our globalised and interconnected world. People are “implanted” with their own practices and traditions into unfamiliar environments. The societies are changing. Not everybody is prepared for these changes. Is it still possible to manage a harmonious atmosphere despite the different religions, ethnic groups, political affiliations, etc.?

Unable to ignore this situation, I want to show with my series “INTERVENCIONES”, how it is possible to reach a compatible balance where big-small, new-old, modern-ancient and any other well-known antithesis can coexist and even make us smile.

rheinfelden surreal

“RHEINFELDEN SURREAL” is a humorously provocative analysis of my place of residence. I want to show the observer familiar or striking corners of the Zähringerstadt in a different way: as unreal, absurd and, in part, grotesque backdrops. But I also want to show what beautiful places there are here in Rheinfelden that are worth taking a closer look at. The photo collages are an invitation to rediscover Rheinfelden.
