GIVE PEACE A CHANCE
Give me a moment to realize…
I had no idea something like that could happen again
Veeringly I am watching the war from outside
Everything seems like an unreal nightmare
Please let this cruelty end soon
Every life saved counts
Away with all these destructive acts
Can this world finally get better?
Every day new children are born
A wonderful fact that gives hope
Can we give peace a chance?
How real is the chance to save our planet?
Are we able to tame our egoism?
Nature is a wonder that needs to be protected
Can we finally let love rule?
Even if it’s a naive dream?

„Chaos and order determine our universe, everything seems to pulsate and constantly change. The circle holds the torn shapes together and resembles a black orbit that brings movement to rest„
The series of works “cohesive orbit” shows how fragile our world is. There are many levels, insights and outlooks, color tones, fractures, shadings or networks, all of which form a large, fragile whole. Space and time meet, overlap and determine each other. Everything is in dynamic motion and at the same time seems to stand still or keep returning. Cycles determine our existence, the life on our planet, every action has an impact, everything seems to be an interdependent part of a large „cohesive orbit“.
The first impression shows a fragile circle that holds together but seems fragile. The work consists of several levels that flow into each other, the foreground, middle and background show connecting lines. The vertical stripes add rhythm to the painting and create a flickering effect. the indicated circle seems to hold everything together, resulting in a cohesive unit. The colors are reminiscent of our earth seen from the universe. It reflects a golden light but the gold layer seems to be crumbling.
A mixed technique of acrylic and oil painting is used in this work. Several layers of paint are applied one after the other and then removed again. The vertical stripes are created using a decollage technique.
