Autodidactic Oil Painting Zines
Documenting an autodidactic prozess in zines. Over the course of three months, I teached myself how to paint with oil colours, wanting to see how far I can develop and try different methods of learning. The zines give an insight into my sketchbook and -diary, (Geschrieben – Written) the different paintings that originated (Gesehen- Seen) and a visualized form of the feelings I have been going through on my learning-journey (Gefühlt – Felt). Unfolded, they each reveal a hidden poster on the backside.
The overall design is meant to resemble the sometimes chaotic and confusing state I was in, while the case is made from the same acrylic glass as my painting palette. Out of the glass leftovers I made some handy tube holders, so nothing goes to waste.
