New works from my summer artist residency at Vermont Studio Center

This summer I had the pleasure to spend one month at the artist residency at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT.  

Just like my residency in 2015, it was an extraordinarily productive time.  Being already well acquainted with the surroundings and studio space from last year, I was able to focus on my work from the first day.  It feels as if this residency was even more productive than the one last year.

I finished two very different, large projects; both of them deal with the strong contrast of construction vs. destruction in the human existence.

Garten der Lüste resulted from my series Eden, and was also inspired by the Hieronymus Bosch painting Garden of earthly delights.

Broken is a conceptual project, continuing my work on non-traceable torture methods, which I started with Love in the Time of Hope.

Please have a look at both projects, and feel free to leave a comment! I am always very happy to engage in discussions about my work.

I will give you more details about each of the projects in my next postings.

I am very grateful for the productive time at VSC, and the incredible group of talented international visual artists and writers with whom I had the pleasure of meeting and collaborating.
