Group exhibition on 13 July
It is more than one week after the event I had been working for since spring – the group exhibition at the “Long night of Buckow”. Please excuse the poor quality of the photo. I had difficulties taking a photo of my framed paintings because of the glass.
I had two partition walls for my seven paintings, and they were situated at the entrance to the artists’ garden. Quite a few people took their time to look at them, and one woman told me that she felt invited by them to think about the stories behind them. This is exactly what I want to do with my paintings – tell stories resp. invite people to make up their own stories looking at them.
As far as I know we didn’t sell any paintings. But I wasn’t expecting that anyhow. But I could talk about them and about my faborite medium – the coloured pencils. People didn’t recognize them on the paintings. They said that they thought they were done with pastel pencils. Coloured pencils for most people here in Germany are something used by small children – and not a “real” art medium.
