'The Colours of My Air Castle'


2018

oil paint on steel bar

83 x 60 cm


It took me several tens, or maybe even hundreds of hours of maddening concentration and endurance to make this piece, which consists of a sheet of pure oil paint hanging on a steel bar. Yesterday evening (sept. 6th 2018) I finally managed to finish the damn thing. Then, when I hung it on the wall for the first time to look at the result, I was deeply moved in a very particular, personal way: I did it, I made a painting without a canvas, a message without a carrier, so to speak. A brittle banner, as transient as all of my personal air castles! As I was taking some quick snapshots of it, all of a sudden the sheet started to rip. And that was the end of it - nearly, because I somehow, in a miraculous way, managed to catch it just in time and to lay it down pretty much as a whole. I hurriedly improvised to restore the rips as good as I could and now, I have to let it dry while laying down. I don't know if the thing will ever be able to be hung up again. Maybe that was really just the end of it. Sooo much effort, for a result that lasted for like 10 minutes... Oh well, it was worth it. After all, air castles are not meant to last forever. Even if they do. (CDV)
