SOLO EXHIBITION –
NATURAL ART OF BAHRAIN @ words bookstore

As a German artist I will present my latest series of artworks such as mini sculptures, medium-sized objects and large wall-montages.

Being a resident of Bahrain for 2 years, I will show an entire collection of my works created from “natural material of Bahrain” – for the first time.
The inspiration for my art work comes from nature and from nature only.
Everywhere I’ve been in Bahrain, I collected pieces of bark, dessert grass and other natural objects.
I love to use these materials to create artworks and present the pieces of nature with a ‘twist’.

The solo exhibition will be opened with a reception night on:
Monday 29th of May 2017 from 7 – 9 pm

Tuesday 30th of May from 10 am and 4 pm
Artist talk 11 am and 6 pm

Everything and a Dead Duck

bigshow2014-logoFresh meat! A blank page! A new beginning! The annual Big Show at Houston’s Lawndale Art Center isn’t the free-for-all it was when it was literally free for all (and curated by Walter Hopps), but I always look forward to it because I’m a hoper: I’m sure the Big Show will smoke out the undiscovered talents lurking Houston area swamps and suburbs, middle schools, painting-party classes, and even university art programs.

2014′s guest juror, Erin Elder of the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, has curated the biggest Big Show ever, with 115 works by 106 artists, most of whom I’ve never heard of. According to Lawndale Director Christine West, a third of them aren’t even in Lawndale’s database. This year’s show was remarkable for its unremarkableness, lacking both the surprising highlights and the god-awful dreck of Big Shows past, but a dozen pieces stuck in my mind:

Eva Graf, <em>The Cube</em>, 2013 Mixed media, 15” x 18” x 18”Eva Graf, The Cube, 2013 Mixed media, 5” x 8” x 8”

Eva Graf‘s The Cube is another curious craft project, a mini-minimalist sculpture covered in pieces of carefully painted tree bark, in decorator shades of iridescent blues and gold, as if it were a designer scarf.
