Welcome!

A warm welcome to my website 'Auge und Feder' ('eye and feather'), dedicated to my passion for literature, photographic art, social innovation and travels to inner and outer worlds.

 


The common, dominating themes in my work are future, vision and innovation. Just like the famous German painter Anselm Kiefer said, there is a frontier between life and art, but without this tension and distance to each other, there simply would be no art. I personally would like to add that there is a similar duality with 'reality' and 'vision'. In the void between both we see the future coming into creation. This is, as an artist, where I like to thrive.

 

In the literary context, my focus is an old but never tired love, science fiction novels, completed by a number of short stories, miniatures and poems (mainly in German). The language of my photographic art, however, is universal, so I hope that you will take the opportunity and have a look at my series of art 4 sale exhibited here. Allow yourself to be inspired by the levels of meaning, whether it may be the aesthetic pleasure, the irony in the face of today's massive media exposure, or the touch of a subtle magic that combines, contrasts, or seperates both. 

 

My third line of work is also circulating around innovation and vision. As a freelance writer, I'm fascinated by social entrepreneurship, impact investing and social finance, and I aspire to track the evolution of these universes with insightful interviews and features. In the meantime, my articles are published in German as well as English. For those, who would like to have a closer look, all links can be found at non-fiction

 

Finally, I hope that you enjoy visual impressions from many corners of this world in my travel sectionPlease feel free to browse, to comment or give me your feedback and ideas.  I will always be happy to receive your emails (see Kontakt), a friendly press on the Facebook or other share buttons, a follow on Twitter (@MoehrleC), Instagram or any other sign of the generous support that every artist needs from time to time.

 

Again, a sincere thank you for your interest in my work and thoughts and a warm welcome to my not-so-small online world!

 

Yours,

Christina Moehrle

"There is no progress in art, any more than there is progress in making love. There are simply different ways of doing it."

Man Ray (1890-1976)

  

"For what end is the camera best used?.........The answer comes always more clearly after seeing a great work of the sculptor or painter......that the camera should be used for a recording of life, for rendering the very substance  and quintessence of the thing itself, whether polished steel or palpitating flesh."

Edward Weston (1886-1958)

 

"Beauty, which I admit too being in pursuit of, is an extremely suspect word among many in the art world. But I don't think you can get along without it. It's the confirmation of meaning in life."

Robert Adams

Poetry:

 

Naked

 

Here I lie

stripped down

to the thin,

soft veil

seperating me

from nothingness.

 

And yet

beneath

my fluctuating self

lies a thruth

that is unique.

 

If only

I could feel

the comfort

of its wooden frame.
