The series of artworks I created under the title “Foamland“ deals with the study of natural phenomena, its appearance and structures. Observing natural phenomena and the texture of materials is the main topic I am concerned with in most of my drawings. The creation of forms happens intuitionally and associatively, and in doing so I purposefully tend to recombine certain elements and forms.
In this case it is the phenomenon of foam I am working with. The basic form of the circle or ball or of a single bubble serves as a building block, similar to organizing principles in nature. I am using a particular imprinting technique to create the bubbles on paper, in which I am working with inked foam lotion. Due to this process an ephemeral phenomenon becomes permanently visible. Additionally, I use pen drawing in order to intensify certain contents in the picture.
