Work description:

Sketches created on site are used as a template for a more detailed pencil drawing.
This drawing is divided into squares.
Each square is transferred separately with acrylic paint onto cardboard.
When all the fields are painted they are assembled.
The interfaces invite the viewer to look at each square individually
without losing sight of the whole picture.
In some cases I magnify a segment to a new painting.
This zoom effect can be used repeatedly.
Since 1993 I have been using the square, to find other ways of composition.
Since 2005, I tilt the squares of my painting to the tip.
This allows me to compress more information on the area.
In part I extend the viewing angle to 360 degrees and thus spells a panoramic view.
