    Momente und Gefühle aus unserem alltäglichen Leben auf Post-It’s.

    Wir nutzen Post-It’s meist täglich in verschiedensten Formen. Gemein ist indes allen, dass sie entweder für jemand anderer oder uns selbst bestimmt sind. Sie transportieren Gedanken eines Moments zu einem späteren. Sie tragen Erinnerungen, die wir behalten möchten. Sie dienen als Ablagen für das, was wir sichern und nicht vergessen wollen.  Sie tun dies auf einen offensichtliche, aber dennoch diskrete Art und Weise, geprägt durch ihre Vergänglichkeit. Somit sorgen sie sich um die scheinbar kleinen – aber so wesentlichen – Dinge unserer Alltage.

    Note: Hike

    This is about the mountains one has to climb. About the irreplaceable feeling when reaching the top. But also about the effort and all the tiny baby steps on the way. Does it matter if they are high? Are the small achievements of ones daily life somehow also as valuable?

    Note: Stop

    A simple word, that probably should be used more often. To counter ourselves (or others) is not always very pleasant. Thus, sometimes it can be relieving in the long term.

    For sure, one can’t - or better should not eat it, but it’s somehow aesthetic and fascinating to look at them. Most of the things carry their own beauty in themselves. It’s ‚only‘ depending on our perspective or ‚normative standards‘.

    Note: ,To the Moon'

    When asked: ‚Where would you fly to?‘ Quiet a lot answers are related to ‚the Moon’. Like: ‚to the moon and back‘ What do we see in the moon? What does it symbolize for us?

    This rose cat brings happiness and warm wishes. It has the capacity to feel joy with others…one of the most beautiful feelings of empathy and the base for every connection.

    The beauty that arises out of seeing and appreciate the little things is endless. The luminance it spreads brightens the moment, minutes and hours. It will be a companion through the day. It will surrounds us with warm light, hugs us genuinely and fullfill the heart.

    Shadow, or: Our own fears
    Shadow, or: Our own fears

    I tried to integrate a reflection of our own fears in this drawing. Our own fears are the ones, which we are most afraid of. They are the ones, which scares us, which paralyzes us or which hold us back. And they are the ones, which have the potential to ‚eat‘ us, bit by bit, by bit, by bit - if we don’t turn around and face them.

    It is about the little step out of the comfort zone. Sometimes this movement carries a touch of anarchy and liberation with it.
