I’m inspired by the way everything is connected with each other.
The most inspiring thing is the process of making art itself.
I work best under time pressure. I give myself deadlines all the time, but I never make it. Only the most important one – the last one.
What is fertiliser for your work? Honestly, it’s just the materials themselves.
I get inspired by dirty walls, grime, torn posters, erosion, found colours and weather. I find going for walks and cycles the most interesting thing to do, there is so much out there to see and such discoveries provide ideas for myself to work from.
Growing up in Minnesota I spent time near the Canadian border. I’d like to return there someday, and make paintings of the landscape. Seeing the aurora borealis has had a lasting effect on me.
The fertiliser for my work? Movement.
When something must be done, I’m very focused on what I’m doing. That is how my work has taken new directions.
“My works are based on the aesthetic of predictable forms as an objectified form of expression. My aim is to discover a self-organizing structure that I can also shape through additions and reductions.” Hagen Hilderhof
Andre Boitard uses a mix of cut-out images from all types of magazines and newspapers and a wide range of different materials he finds during his daily walks through the streets of Berlin for the creation of his unique collage compositions.
