|Year of manufacture:||2007|
|Material:||Oil on Canvas Picture sample Mastertape|
|Total mass:||36" x 50"|
|Frame:||This painting has a simple antique-silver frame, free of unnecessary decorative elements. Because with the metamorphosis of the woman to the mother also stops the teenagers age. It is made in silver color, rather cool and reduced to the essentials, but this is mitigated by the artificial aging.
This mother can concentrate fully on the new task now.
The painting has a golden Ralli-Label integrated into the frame.
|Theme:||The Crowning of Creation|
|Additional Information:||The story :
In any pictorial representation of femininity, the theme of reproduction must be included as a matter of course. And with it the closely related sense of being.
During the course of my life I have known many women who only really entered adulthood with the birth of their first child. Because the aspect of reproduction is so exceedingly important, a picture on this subject was compelling. I therefore developed a crown from the Grand Snail I, a crown which had just discarded its tail. And so it was: the development from the snail into the crown as a symbol of The Woman as the Crowning of Creation. The painted crown now has receptive, cornet shaped goblets on its formerly pointed ends, goblets in which the individual snails or mussels could be placed.
2 small mussles/snails are growing out from the interior, as babies so to speak. They constitute the embellishment for a new crown and an indication of their origin is given by their colours - that of the Female Mussel and the Snail.
