The series GRAND (The raised) contains 5 works:
Grand Beauty, Grand Artists, Grand Designer, Grand Composer, Grand Classic.
These works were influenced by the search for the “sublime”. Great personalities from the world of art. Music and fashion are picturesquely interwoven with scenes – as if from fashion shows – to create paintings. The recognition of the individual personalities only becomes visible on closer inspection.
This work consciously shows female designers whose fashion – of outstanding artistic achievement – has had a profound influence on society.
As in a parade, the actual heads behind the performance are honored with flowers. Everything blurs painterly matt to a painting, but the metal of the background makes shining contrasts sparkle like a thunderstorm of flashes.
