Between the lines

Manipulation as an instrument of power fascinates me since the last few years. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 I have focussed intensely on the development, the spreading of the infection, the reporting, the number of newly infected persons and the controversial expert opinions. After a couple of weeks I realized, although I believed to be an objective observer, that the changing situation slowed down my artistic creativity and reduced my freedom of movement.

To escape this downwards spiral, I started to draw. The radical ‘beautiful coloring’ as desirable virtue reminds me of my childhood and reflects today the powerless-ness towards the current situation.
