Nou-NouGerman version



For the photographic reality of her pictures Nou-Nou did not use photographs. She painted things the way she saw them, also wove her ideas into and emphasized these by intentionally leaving out some aspects. Mostly it were sand pictures that inspired the artist to observe in a precise way and to reflect on what she saw. The natural background colour of brownish wrapping paper was kept, while one object after the other was sketched in. In this way the resulting effect of sand washed objects came into being.
