different ways to take a bath 1, fuerteventura

Painting, Seascape / Water, Oil, Canvas, 197x197x4cm, 2009
my shown works are part of a big project titled with "ON THE BEACH", which pursues the wish for a multicultural society in Europe, in which we see diversity of thought and lifestyle as enriching and supportive. Usually, when we are confronted with a strange culture, we begin by measuring it against our own, almost always on the basis of moral values and views. Although Iím curious and open-minded about foreign cultures, I find that Iím constantly confronting my own ability for tolerance, and catch myself applying my own traditional and moral perceptions and values as a yardstick for judgment, am forced to question my own objectivity and my neutral, non-judgmental acceptance of the unknown. Inspired by my contribution I travelled to the Emirates, Sri Lanka, Thailand and India where again and again I observed how tolerantly and above all completely naturally people from different cultures and religions can live side by side. On the beaches, in particular, I experienced how everyone - fat and thin, young and old, with and without Burkas, in modest one-piece bathing suits or skimpy bikinis, spent their leisure time unprejudiced and respectful of each other.

Herr - that's a very nice green, if I may call it green. especially like the green absorted hair, reminds me of a certain type of marine creature that only breathe once in a lifetime with it's might...
