counters
a work surface is divided into equally sized parts. these parts are divided also in ascending order. their sequence may be linear, meandering or spiral. for each new part area a new color is provided, whereas already utilized colors are strictly repeated according to their part affiliation. division factor and the choice of colors characterize the finished picture.

homage to the triangle # 1
the artist, another person and the random factor create these pictures. the 100 colors of the colored pencil box limit the number of possible divisions of a work surface. by a person's draw, the division factor and the sequence of the colors to be used are determined. the completed picture receives its title after the drawing person's name. it has been generated randomly - thus "per caso".

100+ skies - an open end "work in progress". restricted to dry pigment and two layers of colored pencil, the monochromatic formats reflect subjective perceptions of skies in different locations. the two shown examples are variations of a hot day's summer sky above monte cinto, corsica.

the ring of the nibelung - to interpret richard wagner's monumental opus is the intention of this long term project. large monochrome panels [86x32in] will symbolize the characters and their relationships to each other by color and by their display arrangements.
