Is there a story behind this one?

I was recently asked this question by a friend to whom I showed an excerpt of my latest work. This simple yet incredibly profound question led me to tell the story behind the works of art I create and the thoughts I have about them here in the blog.

First of all, the most important thing. The answer to the question is of course: yes!

There is always a story to my paintings. Basically there are 3 stories. Mine, that of the person portrayed and that of the viewer.

With the title of the work I give an idea of ​​the direction in which my thoughts and the story of the work of art go. This is also the reason why there are no “untitled” paintings in my art. Because the title is often already decided before the first color reaches the canvas. If I'm asked, I also tell my story about the picture - and if I know them, which is usually the case, also that of the person in the portrait.

But I always hold back with my story because I don't want to give too much away.

And this is done consciously, because in this way I give the viewer the necessary space to interpret my work with the help of a small hint in the form of the title in such a way that it resonates directly with him/her. Because the viewer's imagination always arises from his own experiences and therefore also his story.

Every work begins with my story, but in the end the story behind the painting is that of the viewer, i.e. yours. And that's exactly what makes it so special and exciting.

The title of this work is: "Good Girls Go to Heaven".
