Bark Beetle

Bark Beetle: Ölfarbe von Dr. Wurst

I’ve been driving an old beetle for ages. Just as in the commercials from decades ago, it’s “running and running and running”. Strangely, the idea to merge a beetle with an old but blooming tree appeared to me in my dreams. As soon as I woke up, I started to put this particular thought on canvas. Both the beetle and the tree are old but in no way weak, in poor health, or elderly – on the contrary: They gained a lot of experience. Their age and wisdom are their strengths. They will be thriving for years to come.
