Revealing a secret


 

It’s me, Didi, at the age of 18 years – now I am much older…
A friend of mine and I arranged a photo-story: Man and nature…

Why I use nightskies in my artwork

Maybe many from my friends and followers have wondered why I almost always use stars as a kind of emblem in my artwork. This time I want to share this “mystery” to you.

When I was 2 years old we were living close to a forest and at that time there were hardly street lamps installed. My mother used a pram and was walking with me as a baby along a smaller path of a close forest which was really dark. I remember – although so young – that someday when my parents again had to walk with me along the edge of a forest, there was such a wonderful star-night which impressed me so much, although I surely did not understand it, only had feelings for this wonderful miracle in the sky, no words of course (I think we think in feelings at this age, a language maybe straight from the heart). Now if I think back I would describe the stars like sparkling diomonds in the dark night. I felt safe in it, like to be in my mother’s arms. I felt something very big in my heart.

This impression has accompanied me my whole life and therefore you will find space and time, stars of living beauty in my artwork, an expression of embracing eternity, infinity…

Thanks for your attention 🙂

All good wishes

Changeless change


 

 

When we change
While everything around us changes
The changing change cannot change us anymore
We become a silent stillstand…

Animalistic roots in us


 

 

We bear the seeds
Of good and evil in us
Rooted feelings
Eruptions, outbreaks
In all colours
Spectrum from anger to joy
Of happiness and sadness
Patterns of love and hate
In an alternating bath

Living blood
Pulsating in the roots
Intertwined arteries
Of fluctuating feelings
Thoughts that take shape
Reaction, perception of senses
Principle of cause and effect
Waves crashing down on us
Turning ourselves into waves

Who wins this game
Wins the life
Becomes a real human being…
