Published in 2020 by Morel Books. “80 per cent of artists are dealing with mother issues.” says in his personal interview the internationally praised German artist Hans-Peter Feldmann. He muses on the magnetic power of women, and shares how he has used art as both escape and therapy.
The repetitive function of collecting pictures is therapeutic to Feldmann, and makes things clear and tangible for him. Many artists use their art as a form of therapy, “as a flight to another world someone from the old world can’t access.” As for Feldmann, who too had mother-issues and grew up during the war and the post-war years, this was also the case: “… the images opened a world to me that was very, very lovely.”
