Wood, roots and silent places.
Monochrome ink drawings of nature. The black.book series is dedicated to silent places, as well as trees and their strong roots which can be found in the middle of the forest. I particularly like to draw the elegant shapes of roots, branches and bones in black and white. In this context, I create a dense network of fine, black ink lines. It is important to me to depict the natural forms that are visible. But also the idea of the flowing vitality inside the tree flows into the design.
Long hikes through the forest and to remote places are my source of inspiration. When I spend my time in nature, I often have my sketchbook with me to make quick drawings. Usually I use them for orientation before I begin to draw a special tree or landscape in detail. In my eyes, trees and their impressive roots stand for vitality, stability and the cycle of life.
