Welcome!

A warm welcome to my website Auge und Feder - 'Eye and Feather' -, which is dedicated to my passion for impact & social innovation, photographic art and travels to inner and outer worlds.

 

The common and dominating themes in my work are future, vision and innovation. Just like the famous German artist Anselm Kiefer once said, there is a frontier between life and art, but without this tension and distance to each other, there simply would be no art. There is a similar tension between 'reality' and 'vision': in the void between both, we see the room for conscious creation. This is the place where I like to thrive, as a human being, as an artist and as an actor for social innovation.

 

In the literary context, my focus is an old but never exhausted love for science fiction novels, complemented by a number of short stories, miniatures and poems (mainly in German). The language of my photographic art, however, is universal. Enjoy the opportunity to have a look at my series of Art-4-Sale exhibited on this site. I hope you'll be inspired by its levels of meaning, whether the pure aesthetic pleasure, the irony in the face of today's massive visual media exposure, or the touch of a subtle magic that combines, contrasts, or seperates both.

 

My main line of work is also circulating around innovation and vision. As a freelance advisor & expert in impact finance, I'm fascinated by - and 100 precent focused on - social entrepreneurship, impact investing, innovative blended and impact finance. My mission is to support the evolution of these nascent universes with effective education programs and knowledge dissemination pieces created by and with my clients for all stakeholders involved.

 

Finally, I hope that you will enjoy some visual impressions from many corners of this world in my travel section. Please feel free to browse, to comment, follow or give me your feedback and ideas here. Every artist and creative human being needs some signs of generous support 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!

 

Cordially,

 

Christina Maiia Moehrle

citations

"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 -

 

 "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 

 

 "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.

 

- CM, 2007 -
