What I am up to these days …

January 16. 2012

Preparing for the opening of my soloshow at Fahnemann Projects

Right now I am working on works on canvas and paper that will be exhibited in my Soloshow next month at Fahnemann Projects in Berlin. For these works I am trying to push the boundaries of color and abstraction further still – creating my own colorful universe… now if only the sun would come out!


We have also just confirmed that Donald Kuspit, one of the most distinguished American art critics, is working on an essay for my upcoming catalogue. I am thrilled!
