About this artwork

"Blooming was made two years ago, when my best friend was expecting her first child - it is dedicated to her and her baby. The work will always remind me of this time and the special glow in which my friend was shining. I have shown the motive in all my exhibitions so far, and have printed it in many different formats.

For my exhibition at Kaffeemitte, I wanted to try something new: With the help of street artist Dared*, I enlarged the motive so that it fills an entire wall. I projected the drawing onto a large paper,  transferred the lines and then colored and cut it out. Then I glued it up with brush and wallpaper paste. I am really happy how the drawing blends with the space. 

Sometimes you hear that only galleries or museums are the right place to present art appropriately. But we can reach hundreds of people in a place like Kaffeemitte. Seven days a week. An audience sees my work, that has not deliberately come to see art. An audience I wouldn't have reached otherwise. That's the attraction of street art as Dared creates it. Large images pasted in public space, seen by everyone who walks by. 

Part of the challenge is using the most durable glue - I was still having my difficulties with the dosage, so the day after the opening of the show I was back at Kaffeemitte. My paste-up was coming loose and I wanted to fix it. When I got there, there was a stroller in front of the wall and I waited without hurry until the mom had gotten her coffee. Meanwhile, I thought again of the time when this work was created, and my friend and her daughter Eva, who has since started to play with brush and paint herself."
