Goldmanns Weltraum Varianten, 2003/4

Goldmanns Weltraum Varianten (you may translate that as Goldmann‘s Space Variants) were necessary to get back into arts; by resuming a project of the 1960ies I opened the door to the present time. I tried to transfer book cover illustrations of Eyke Volkmer, made by air brush, into Linoleum print. - The big works (Goldmanns Weltraum Varianten 1.1 bis 1.4) I feel turned out bad and are not shown here. - After this project the character of my works changed from graphic to painting; instead of the usual brushes I use roller and linol to apply the colors. >>
