Walking is collecting. It means collecting impressions, images, getting in touch with our surroundings. Through regular walks in the same area makes you notice things. One neighbour changed his curtains, another one has new bushes in front of the house. New houses are being build. The following paintings are kind of documents of changes (or better said, side-results of them) in my home neighborhood. Photos of house-building material, which were taken while walking, served as a source material for the paintings. They depict junk as an ornament, as something beautiful. But it is flothing on the pictorial surface. Not fully belonging there, just as the trash does not belong in the environment.
