Diptych: Italian-Speaking Switzerland

During my childhood, my parents and I traveled to Italian-speaking Switzerland regularly. The routes to St. Gotthard, Brenner Pass, San Bernardino, and Verzasca valley touched me deeply.

Many years later, I already lived in Schleswig-Holstein which has a totally different landscape. This Diptych is inspired by expressionism. Its striking colors convey the quaint mountains and vigorous rivers, that cut valleys through the mountains.
