“Friedrich {A Story} is a series of multi media works that I have been producing from the beginning of 2009. While trying to come to terms with a serious event in my life these artworks are beginning to form a visual catalogue of signs, symbols and landscapes of this personal and spiritual journey that I am now on … My needle and thread element reflects on how life can be broken down to the simplest of acts – and create a type of artistic meditation.”
