Rockart – Art in Nature
Since 1991 I have also painted directly on the appropiate rocks with the colours I gathered in the surroundings. With this technique I formed about 15 earth paintings in different regions of Arizona, Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico, USA, and more of them in India and on Tenerife, for example.

The artist Marco Pogagnic had already measured out the place with special techniques and had described it as one of the very exceptional places of energy. Hence they believed that the round place, 12 metres big, needed red earth shades. So I digged volcanic rocks round the island. During my works in January 1996, Thor Heyerdahl visited me in Tagoror.
In March 2003 I returned to Tenerife and freshened up the earth colours, a method which the Aborigines in Australia always repeat.
