Schneehuhnfrau I (Dein weiches Fell, das aufsteigt bis zur schneeigen Hornspitze

Material: acrylic, crayon, chalk, snow on canvas,
Size: 200 cm x 200 cm cm

The ptarmigan woman, for example, a motif that appears again and again in my work, I understand as a female cyborg in Haraway's sense. She is many and many things, wears many robes, has many voices, many tongues, and many mouths and mothers. She has an explosive, blazing, and inhabited plumage of flowers, feathers, and hair. She wears horns, is furious, passionate, and sensual.
