‘Here’s a pretty kettle of fish’ as the saying goes for apparently the German-born artist sees his new body of paintings and drawings ( plus two unique wool jumpers ) as an antidote to his nowadays somewhat moody and potentially angry mindset. Certainly he achieves that aim because they are elegantly atmospheric while remaining slightly ambiguous. They intrigue and engage rather than repulse despite their air of broodiness.
