"A Picture a Day Keeps the Doctor Away" 2017

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick, And think of you, ...

Flashback warm nights, Almost left behind, suitcases of, ...

Am I an Andy Poussoh, now?! (Artist shit)

Do fish ever get thirsty?

Men are pigs, don't trust them, They all want just one thing, ...

Gays are like... like princesses with a faible for unicorns.

Would toys commit suicide if they had a dreadful childhood?

Why are there rings on Saturn? Because God liked it, so he put a ring on it.

Is there a time limit on fortune cookie predictions? (Look for happiness and you will find it)

I'm not looking for somebody with some superhuman gifts ...

Today, I talked to God. Said I'm sorry that I haven't been in touch ...

Do butterflies remember life as a caterpillar?

The only way to find out if you can trust someone, is to trust

Sexercise

One may try to make it right for everyone, however, in the end you might just have to go with the flow.

Welcome to the candy store! What do you fancy, today?

Some people believe mess clears by itself... but it was me. (Gay cleaning)

In the 21st century, one would think we have no humanitarian crises... NO!

The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress. (Joseph Joubert)

Drawings; Paper, various pens
30x30cm

... is the title of my thesis established during the last academic year of my studies in Fine Arts at the Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne (Ecal). This work resembles a picture diary consisting of individual drawings on paper.

The drawings depict snapshots of everyday situations: banalities, highs and lows, expressions, impressions, or just experiences of life. The meaning of the drawings, especially those with inadequate or confusing slogans, is not apparent and obvious to the viewer. The viewer is invited to form his own opinion and make his own thoughts as well as to put himself in my place whilst gazing at my work. The use of ball-pens, conventional Eddingmarker, highlighters, pencils and metallic pens from the supermarket emphasises the relation to everyday life.

During my childhood, a sketchbook was my permanent companion in which I painted or wrote poems almost daily. Visiting an exhibition of Paul Klee in September 2005, I was inspired by the fact that he drew roughly a thousand images in one particular year. After some less difficult mathematical considerations one can conclude that he had created about three drawings each day. Taking this as an ideal it constituted the foundation of my idea from which the works originate.

Similar to my work, the work of the admirable artists David Shrigley, Danica Phelps and Banksy , also combine drawings and texts with relation to the present in their works. My work was influenced as well by work of the Nabis artist group which have a more documentary appearance, in particular by the work of Edouard Vuillard , Pierre Bonnard, Félix Valloton.
