After that I decided not to make exhibitions for a longer period.
This decision was to be able to intensify my way of expressing myself and to develop my line of motives – and in this process to be totally unaffected of what the potential viewer might think of this. I needed to work completely in peace with myself. Changing my focus from the landscapes in nature to the inner landscapes of my mind.
In general, I think showing your work to strangers is a very sensitive, fragile act, which feels rather revealing and transboardering. Knowing that you are going to exhibit your works can easily mean, that you automatically are censoring yourself in your way of expression, leaning towards what people like.
I made an exception from this decision by joining the Biennale in Florence in 2007 – with the work “El Lobo Interior”. It was interesting once more to be part of the artistic “scenario”, but I still needed more time for myself.
Therefore, it took 16 years before I wanted to take part of an exhibition again. Now with a very different line of motives. It has been a long process, but this was worthwhile. So in 2012 I “entered the art-world” again, exhibiting the work “Female Cannibalism” at The Art Museum of Chianciano Terme, Italy.
Frankly, I still don’t like to exhibit my works. In fact, it would be easier for me to be streaking down the avenue during business hours. I am very egoistic about my works – I am doing them totally for my own sake.
