Residency at Achterhaus
July – September 2018


During my time as a resident at Ateliergemeinschaft I started my research in different painting materials. in this research I shifted my focus away from the depicted image and thematised the underlying surface. In this process I moved from painting on canvas and started to work with materials like knitted canvas, plaster, silicone and different kinds of fabrics. How do these different materials and their haptic characteristics effect the way the viewer experiences the works?
