Tree Huggin'
German Insects & Flowers

Linea Obscura are something I draw when I am extremely relaxed.
Otherwise I would go nuts with all those long straight lines.
But once I am relaxed enough it becomes very exhilarating, almost a form of meditation.
Line by line the drawing progresses, each line building on the previous, guiding the work in a slightly new direction.
Random mistakes become exaggerated with every successive line and they
influence the outcome of the drawing.
Like in photography, printmaking or pottery the result is always slightly different from the original idea.
I made the first set of Linea Obscura drawings between 1988 and 1989.
Now, I started the second series in 2002.
I have never shown Linea Obscura in public so far. I am quite shy.
