Colour pencil on paper: 4 times 29.7x42cm and 4 times 50x64cm
Leuchten means to shine, to glow, or to sparkle. The four first drawings, in size A3, were made with colour pencils of the brand Faber Castell. I received these pencils in the 1980s, living in East Germany, with a package from the family in West Germany. The colours were so colourful that I never really dared using the pencils as a child, except for the light blue one that I could really not resist. When I moved back to Germany, I stumbled upon this colour pencil box again. Besides the pencils used, each drawing has its own story however. They do not represent any special hidden shapes. I find a diversity of lights in these drawings that soothe the mind and the heart, I find the destabilization of my position when trying to focus a blur, and I find a sensation of the extension of time.
