to be seen. The first drawings of this phase were already made around 2016, when inner images of the early snow on the Swiss mountain ‘Jungfrau Joch’ did not let go of the artist.
When looking at the mountain massif full of crevices, she was overwhelmed by the different incidence of light and the shadow furrows that became dominant. But the memories of the folds of the robe of Jan van Eyck’s ‘Madonna in the Chamber’, which had been imprinted on her mind for a long time, were the real impetus for her to turn to the mountain massif.

Viewers sense the underlying experience of nature absorbed by the artist. The masses of snow on the mountain, the birds flying in formations, the play of clouds, everything is connected lyrically in the flow of the drawing.
