My pencil drawings are not as light and ephemeral as most of
the drawings. Thus there are small notes, sketches and drafts
and notes, but my central drawing theme are pencil drawings in
a large scale. With blocky character, heavy and sometimes
hermetic the objects are placed on the paper. For realization
of these 2 to 3 meters formats I need several months. The
drawings come into being in a process. Layer for layer
crosshatching come together and then it materialized and
create an object, which differs between several associations.
