(Past) new purchase by Louis-Dreyfus Family Collection
2016-04-13 until 2016-05-12

Exciting news! The Louis-Dreyfus Family Collection purchased two works of my brand new series Stretching Universe this month: Stretching Universe part 1, Coast and Stretching Universe part 3, Reflected Wetlands.

The last six months I’ve worked on my new series Stretching Universe, part…, for which I connect cinematic characteristics with “authentic” landscapes of breathtaking nature. Stretching Universe refers to the scientific fact that our universe is expanding, while at the same time people on earth have become less tolerant towards each other and in this respect the world thus seems to be shrinking due to narrow-mindedness.
