Kindness of Strangers, 2018
I produced these works In 2018, after I finished my second series of psychotherapy sessions. The pieces have the wide-ranging, meandering ambiguities known from my previous work — which are also uniquely known to those trying to interpret dreams, Freudian slips or other co-conscious actions.
The pieces aim to emulate rather than depict such subconscious plots: throughout the last years, I continuously suggested psychoanalytical, and thus highly individualized readings of my works. With paintings being inherently post- and preverbal, they seemed a perfect medium for a series on ambiguities and personal interpretations.
Works of this series were exhibited at Galerie Voss (Düsseldorf) under the title “Kindness of Strangers” (2019) (my fourth solo show there) and at Reiners Contemporary (Marbella) under the title “Don’t Leave Me” (2019) (my first solo show in Spain), at Galerie Schloss Parz (2021) and at Art Cologne (2020)
