Silence

This series has its origin in the representations of the beach bath Eichwald - Silence I through IV. I liked staying there when the season was over and this place, whose purpose is the bather's entertainment, had turned into a vacant theater setting. The melancholy, thoughtless silence of the bathing facilities, the calm of the water and the reflections in it have particularly captivated me.

The abandoned swing in the midday sun, the incessant movement of the sea, the waves hitting the beach with their constant wind-driven comings and goings and the lake with its grandeur and monotonous indifference, had apparently made a pact. And I realized that things will never change.
