in the boat of myself

sitting in the ocean 100cm x 100cm oil and wax on canvas

Late, by myself, in the boat of myself,
no light and no land anywhere,
cloudcover thick, I try to stay
just above the surface, yet I am already under
and living within the ocean


let the sap rise

fired earth 92cm x 92cm oil and wax on canvas

"From the root, the sap rises up into the artist, flows through him, flows to his eye. Overwhelmed and activated by the force of the current, he conveys his vision into his work. And yet, standing at his appointed place as the trunk of the tree, he does nothing other than gather and pass on what rises from the depths. He neither serves nor commands he transmits. His position is humble. And the beauty at the crown is not his own; it has merely passed through him."

Paul Klee
