Layer technique with color

In 2004 I created these paintings using the ‘layer technique’ that was teched in a minor course at the Technical University of Dresden (Germany). A fascinating aspect was that one time the professor came buy, watching all students paint, stopped at my working place … silence. Suddenly, he said ‘You did grew up in a ‘salmon’ colored room right? He was right and I was impressed. He later told me that he was interested in how far the upbringing would have an influence on people’s art. From his experience he saw a connection of the people’s choice of color and the color the room had they were brought up in.
