Waldeinsamkeit (woodland solitude) — a German word that means the feeling of being alone in the woods. This word describes the general mood of this series. In these paintings you walk into the forest alone, passing to another world where magical creatures and apparitions reside. This imaginative world aches of a haunted past, an unknown fate and playful innocence.
The series aims to evoke feelings of nostalgia, longing, and a sense of the unknown fate. The paintings are intended to be contemplative and introspective, encouraging the viewer to reflect on their own emotions and memories, and to consider the ways in which nature and imagination shape our understanding of the world. The forest in this series is a place of solace, a place to reflect on the past, and a place of wonder, inviting the viewer to explore their inner self and the emotions that they evoke,
