After the first spontaneous foto shoot, thank god, I could finish one painting of Marius in my last long painting period. Marius sits in front of the piece taking the same pose. Now it is your turn to find out the differences between the original and the painting in case there are any!
A very early work – 2007 – when I used to work on different materials. I still love it and I just found it in my storage. A translation of the title would be something like “Attila curtsies really phat.”
It is a mixed media work on wood, 15x40x2cm and the price is 240 €.
“Ein Stück Schwarzwälder, bitte!” – A classical order in an old German cafe! It is a wonderful torte, with cherries, cream and “cherry water”. Aaaah I love it!
If it comes to food, it is so amazing to arrange it, work with light and background colors, create a special and specific atmosphere and take fotos! Perfect!
But to paint food is so extremely difficult, because mostly you just have no form. Think of a Risotto, Spaghetti Bolognese, a Tiramisu or a pumpkin soup. If you are extremely exact and realistic in your style, then it works very well, though it is still a challenge. But then you are also very close to a foto.
So the other way would be to find food, that has a form, like a burger, whole pieces of meat, bread or cakes. So in this piece I decided to paint a piece of Schwarzwälder Torte.
I had a form but I could also play around in a more experimental way. And then it is 200×150 cm, a huge not eatable piece. I am wondering how you feel sitting close to it, if you really see what it is, or you you look at it sitting a bit more far away! What do you think.
By the way if this piece is too big, it is also available as a print on vat paper, signed and limited on 12 pieces in 2 sizes.
30×40 cm (+ 1 cm white edge around) – 90 €
60×81 cm (+ 1 cm white edge around) – 240 €
And here are the other ones of this series. Enjoy and have a happy day!
You can’t do always and only the big sizes, the huge paintings, the overwhelming enormous stuff, sometimes you need the silent little moments, just with a pen and a small piece of paper, the pure moments, when you just are who you are and just do what you do.
Two versions of one theme – sometimes you are inspired by a theme or a figure in such a great und intense way, that you can not stop to try different versions. Often I feel so extremely old-fashioned that the old old muse is my main search to paint, but … it is.
Both pieces are 70×70 cm – acrylic and mixed media on canvas – the price of one is 1.300 €
