2018 Salzburg International Summeracademy of Fine Arts: Besides the portrait paintings another working process starts with the working title »The Sandpaper Project« This time, large-sized sandpaper, pastels and filler form the basis for an abstract method. The soft pastels on sandpaper are leading to a very strong colourful stroke, because of the sandpaper roughness.
The filler applied with spatula results in relief style structure, which can be sanded to flatten the shapes. A kind of skeleton made out of wood transforms the two-dimensional work into a more sculpture-like object. All in all, a very haptic working experience.
