Isabelle, Monika, CasNot that there is anything devilish about my time there except for the weather which was Faustian in both heat and the resulting thunderstorm. It is claimed that the castle overlooking Staufen (and the workspace) was destroyed has a result of Faust conducting alchemical experiments involving explosives? Faust (c1480 - 1539), an actual historical figures sparked legends in his own day, In Goethe's version one of the chief devils, Mephistopheles, whom Faust had called his brother-in-law, broke Faust's neck and committed his soul to eternal damnation.
As always though, my German hosts and friends created a wonderful atmosphere and equally adventurous work.I was somewhat pleased to end my stay back with the Saints in St Ulrich and alongside my friend Monika added images to the marks on the wall in the messy studio
I finished my time with a peaceful walk in the local allotments in Freiburg close to Hexental (the Valley of the Witches) and walking around the neighbourhood.
(In June, I was happy to back to he lovely little island of Jersey under the invitation of the Harbour Gallery where I ran workshops in St Aubins to a two day workshop as part of Contextual Art studies timed exam in Hautlieu school The resulting work was simply stunning and hung at St Saviour's Church..(see more on this video link) Keep on eye out for some great tutors and projects coming up
