Three spatula strokes in a row. The same spatula three times creates three unequal surfaces. Each of them is differentiated differently and yet all three convey something textile, material, something rising in the wind, seeming to flutter there.
A thin cord that connects everything contrasts with the wide surfaces, some of which look torn and perforated like old scraps of fabric and on which there are lines again inside the surface. No line is too much, no surface too little. The flat white paper as support and ground becomes space and the seemingly lightly placed surfaces appear three-dimensional and realistic.
This work was created on the first day of the metrological summer of 2021 and opens a new small series entitled „Red on White“ or „Fluttering in the Wind“.
