In this series I dedicate myself once more to the portrait, which I create using the stripe technique that I created intuitively during the work process.


The painting is created in 4 steps: The portrait is first painted in color on the canvas, then I stick stripes over the face and paint the same portrait over it again in black and white. In the last step, the strips are peeled off again (see pictures and video).

I experience the stripping of the stripes like a caterpillar, by throwing off parts of the painting like a cocoon. The finished portrait appears in the colors of a butterfly.
