Tag: cyanotype

still not much news . . .

new:
my first
little
work
catalogue!

Cautiously, I am trying to plan the first dates for this year
and not to think about all the cancellations of the last two years.
According to my postcards, I was able to finish at the end of 2021 –
just in time for the 8th Biennale of BuchKunst Weimar
a small edition of the first catalogue booklet of my work – or rather
an atmospheric picture book: »Sailing the Art / Craft Divide«.

For the time being, like the postcards, it is available in my webshop:
wabi-sabi-works
but above all at my stand at exhibitions and fairs –
as far as that will be possible again.

For BuchDruckKunst Hamburg, whose special theme this year is alternative photographic techniques, I am currently preparing another small catalogue about Cyanotype.

My first exhibition date 2022:
Look for me at blauvogelbuch

1 – 3 April 2022
BuchDruckKunst – Erlesenes auf Papier
at Museum der Arbeit, Wiesendamm 3, Hamburg
(U-/S-Station Barmbek)
Opening on Friday, 1 April, at 5 p.m.

Smallpress Fair, Mainz
which normally takes place every second (odd) year,
also fell victim to Corona in 2021 and will now be held again
26 – 29 May 2022 at the Rheingoldhalle, Mainz.
current/ 24 February: The Smallpress fair has been cancelled again, and postponed to 2023.

Not having reached a “normal” state of work and social contacts,
I am still posting fotos of my work & studio etc. from time to time:

new year, new luck…?

Absolutely unexpectedly, I can now start with the last sentence of my post from the end of October: “Now I wish everyone good nerves and health for the coming months …” – because, not only my, hopes for an early return to normal working life have unfortunately not yet been fulfilled.
Despite keeping my fingers crossed, the BuchDruckKunst Hamburg has now been hit again this year, the date of March 12 – 14 is unfortunately, no longer to be held in this still imponderable Corona situation. Fortunately, however, it is not a cancellation this time, but the fair will be postponed, to September 24 – 26, 2021.

…and now
please
summer
forever!

Oh, almost forgot: I reluctantly created an Instagram account at the end of October, after the Frankfurt Book Fair which failed to take place for the first time in my life. I had intended to only give it a try until the end of 2020, but now want to continue with it during the lockdown after all….

winter is coming . . .

When in spring 2020 suddenly all my appointments fell victim to the pandemic,
I intended to use this unplanned »free time« for undisturbed work in the studio.
However, flow and peace of mind were missing – not only due to the daily news (and lack of earning opportunities), but also due to the uncertain perspective of when it might be possible to organize unbiased exhibitions and workshops again. A colleague wrote: “I got virtually nothing going in the studio, it was like a lapse, after any prospect of being able to »show« became superfluous”.
Being outside a lot and working in the garden was then very helpful – and above all, exposing new cyanotypes in the sun again and again! This fascination will certainly not end with the completion of my new book »BLAUE WUNDER«, which was published in September.
Which I’m very happy about, even if I couldn’t celebrate it at the Frankfurt Book Fair (cancelled) at the Haupt Verlag booth as usual (have a »look inside« the book under Publications).

Now I wish everyone good nerves and health for the coming months, and maybe I’ll even manage to have some brand new works in the store by Christmas, we’ll see…

…and now
go well
through the
dark season!

…also if it works out this time?
Please keep your fingers crossed!
