Astrid Köppe

My studio is my favourite place.

What I do in one sentence: small drawings, large scale vitreous enamels and some other pretty shiny stuff; often at the edge of perception and hopefully confusing the beholder.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: I did. In fact, it’s several proper jobs rolled into one as every fellow artist knows.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: I’m not telling. But I’ll make it some day.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Gabriele Jerke. Subtle, strange, beautiful works. She should be famous.

I am afraid of falling.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: I really couldn’t care less.
