2016-03-25 - The Weyward Sisters


I was born behind the wall in West Berlin in the mid-1960’s. I remember drawing a lot as a child and making animated movies with lumpy clay dinosaurs. My work has always been ominous and melancholy to a varying degree. I am not alone. My work is part of a continuum that has its philosophical roots in texts like Friedrich Nietzsche’s The Birth of Tragedy. This trend is prevalent in the works of artists like Philip Guston and James Ensor and the writings of authors like J.G Ballard. I refer to it as art in a minor key.
