Selection of colour pencil drawing series. 2015-2018.

Colour pencil on paper. 29,7x42,0cm. The last four images are size 50x64cm.

Some of these drawings were made with pencils from old pencil factories that I collected, for example from the brands Saxonia (GDR) and Phönix (GDR). I also used a box of Faber Castell that I received in the 1980ies in a Westpaket when I was still a kid, these pencils came in beautiful colours I had never seen (pink and lightblue for example); I had never dared to use these precious pencils until 2015.

Early pieces of this work were exhibited at Kunstraum Michael Barthel II in 2016.
