Maj 2022 I spent in the beautiful seaside resort of Ahrenshoop in northern Germany on the Baltic Sea.. I had an artist in residency at Künstlerhaus Lukas (www.kuenstlerhaus-lukas.de) together with other artists – photographer, painter, graphic artist and author. The photographer Marlene Pfau has just recieved an award for her work – and I was so lucky, that she wanted to make a portrait of me.
I spent my stay taking a closer look at the beautiful nature – pristine forests, sandy beaches, birds and big trees. And then there is a lot of art and galleries, which of course I had to see. My artistic work took place in a nice studio in the house, where I made a lot of graphics – etchings, collography and monotypi etc.. Some of the time I shared the printing press with a Ukrainian graphic artist, who made woodcuts.
