Artist's Description

Desert with Gepard, Acrylic Collage, 15,7×11,8 inch, 2007. The acryl collage consists of picture parts of different perspectives and components of various countries. Right down in the picture two different perspective are presented the ocher rocks of Roussillon/France, a bizarre and colored landscape, which are astonishing. The stone of this ocher rock becomes grinded in small particles and supplies one of the usually-used nature coloring materials, on whose proceeds the people of Rousillon lived long time, until chemistry perished the business. Today this rock again brings money in the country, as tourist attraction. Above this fantastic landscape rutted mountains pile up themselves up from dry flumes, which results from the technic of Decalcomanie with water-colors. Behind it a ocher colored stony desert (coffee grounds bound with Caparol) spreads up to the far horizon. A cheetah, the fastest large cat of the world, hisses the viewer of the picture left in the picture with far stretched neck projecting in the picture fear-exciting. The progress caught up also this noble animal. Also keeping in track speeds to 115 km/h do not help theese cheetahs: The captor lurk everywhere – e.g. on these gepards in Tanzania. Cheetah habitat shrinks, because more and more savannahs are transformed into fields. Consequence: The East Africa niches governments are glad, if they will be able to sell the wonderful animals lucratively. And because the cats in shank hardly increase, the demand of the zoos know no end.
