Lichtgrenze

My 2014 holiday etching celebrates the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago and the beautiful Lichtgrenze, an impressive and (for me) very moving installation of balloons along the former course of the wall through the middle of Berlin. The balloons were released one after the other on the evening of November 9.

Christmas / New Year's Card 2012

This year’s etching was inspired by my heroes of the Berlin streets, bike messengers. This ecologically mobile Santa is speeding past the Brandenburg Gate, heading south with a bag full of happiness for the new year.
This is a three-plate etching with parts in drypoint and mezzotinto.
