"I like to draw best. I work from within, from memory, as well as with intuitive, repetitive forms. Additionally with templates (for example photographs) - I call these «external images». I intuitively make, search, collect and arrange them. When I draw, the «something» that makes me choose a picture is the «something» that makes me choose a picture. I combine and blend the selected outer pictures and the inner pictures, as well as sometimes written language, in my drawings. Love Engravings are two subjects which, made possible by the VFO, represent my involvement with copperplate printing and selected aspects of «love»."

Funding project 08

In 2008 the Association for Original Graphics (VFO) celebrates its 60th anniversary. For their birthday they gave themselves a present: the support project 08 - a discreet method of antiaging. The VFO offered young Swiss artists the opportunity to gain their first experience in the field of printmaking (i.e. the artists were to choose a technique they had never worked with before).
The selection of the artists took place in a multi-stage process. On the one hand, the VFO directly approached interesting young artists. Secondly, all the important art schools in Switzerland were contacted with the request that they each select two artists who would like to submit a project. From all the projects submitted, a jury consisting of members of the board and external experts then selected artists who were subsequently given the opportunity to attend a workshop.
The participants in the project were given the opportunity to attend a workshop of about one week's duration in a printing studio of their choice. The entire costs were borne by the VFO. The aim of the workshop was not to present a print-ready product, but to become familiar with a particular technique.
In order to deepen the sustainability of the workshop phase, each artist was given the opportunity - with the experience gained - to produce a group of 2 to 4 works in a small edition for the VFO. The resulting prints will now be shown in November 2008 in a support bunk at Kunst Zürich 08. Afterwards, the works were on display for about three months with the November 2008 edition in the rooms of the VFO.
