Thinkbody.

Mein erstes selbstgeschriebens Buch.
Der Inhalt bleibt noch vorerst unter Verschluss.
Etwa 3 Jahre saß ich dran. Auch die zusätzlichen Arbeiten wie Illustrationen, Fotos, Zeichnungen, Gestaltung etc. sind von mir. Bin sehr gespannt auf das Endergebnis und wie es beim Leser aufgenommen wird!

My first self-written book.
The content remains a secret for now.
It took approx. 3 years to complete, not only for the writing process, but also for the illustrations, photos, drawings and design etc. which are also my creation. I'm pretty exited about the final result, and how it will be received by the reader!

Hier einige Beispiele meiner aktuellen Arbeiten.
Es hat viele Jahre gedauert, bis ich endlich meinen Weg in der Malerei gefunden habe. Zum ersten Mal fühle ich mich - in vielfältiger Hinsicht - angekommen! Die lange Reise hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt!

Here are a few examples of some current paintings.
It took many years, until I actually found my own path with the paintings. Hence, for the very first time I feel as though I've finaly arrived - in various ways. But it surely was worth the long journey.

Worpswede October 07

Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876 - 1907)

   
Spuren und Räume

Sie ist die bedeutendste deutsche
Wegbereiterin der künstlerischen Moderne.

Grund genug für mich in Worpswede
die einmalige authentische Atmosphäre aufzusaugen und im "Teufelsmoor" Zeichnungen anzufertigen.


An Originalschauplätzen wird Geschichte lebendig!
Traces and Spaces

She is the most important German
pioneer of modernism in art.

Reason enough for me to visit Worpswede,
to absorb the unique atmosphere, and to make some drawings in the "Teufelsmoor" (engl.: Devils Moor).

At original locations history comes alive!

Stockholm Syndrome

Autumn Impressions 05

Yes, it has been a magnificent time in Sweden. The meeting with my gallery-friend Mrs Marie Lind was very promising and productive, so the earliest shows over there will be around 2007/8 I guess – time enough to work on my new buggers (well, what else).

Apart from the town gallerys, the painters and so on, my inspiration kick this time came unexpectedly from that weird blonde dreadlock beserker, who ran like mad and without a single break up the citys hill at Götgatan – well done! Alter Schwede...! That’s a type of art, too! Hahaha!

Last but not least: A big thanks goes to Yvonne Brattling from Södermalm, for her hospitality during my visit. A very nice, kind and funny lady. I’ll never forget her swedish king-size viking-pizza. Tack tack.

See yah...Martyn

Wish me luck...and stay tuned...

Martyn
