Introduction:
streik nails
Why now this specific blog, “Nails In Art”? Probably because I just hammered hundreds of nails in the roof during restoration of our old house and also I had to pull out many 350-year-old forged nails.

Warum gerade jetzt so ein Blog, Nägel in der Kunst, wahrscheinlich da ich gerade hunderte Nägel bei der Dachrestauration unseres alten Hauses reinschlug und auch viele 350 Jahre alte geschmiedete Nägel herauszog…und so Zeit hatte darüber nachzudenken.
old nails

At the age of 14, I was inspired by the German saying: “Always hit the nail on the head” and made this drypoint artprint.

Mit 14 Jahren nutzte ich den Deutschen Spruch,:“Immer den Nagel auf den Kopf treffen“ zur Inspiration meiner Kaltnadelradierung.

Der Nagelbaum, ein wichtiger Bestandteil in der Schmiedezunft mit der ich seit meiner Ausbildung als Metallgestalter eng verbunden bin.

Later in my artistic career I used industrial nails in various sculptures

Später in meinem künstlerischen Schaffen benutzte ich immer wieder Nägel in verschiedensten Skulpturen.

Since my trip to Africa, I have been fascinated by the figurative fetish nail sculptures also called more correctly nkisi, minkisi.

And then of course, there’s the international renown German Artist Günter Uecker; his nail-life work is very important and his accumulated 50 years of works has become unbelievable.

One day I would like to hear the sound of this!

Und dann natürlich Günter Uecker, sein Nagel-Lebenswerk gewaltig und doch interessant was ich daraufhin am Internet noch für andere „Nagel Künstler“ entdeckte. Denn neben den historischen Nutzung der Nägel als Symbole ist der Stahlnagel seit den 60er Jahren vielfälltigst in der Kunst genutzt worden

Pourquoi maintenant comme un blog, des clous dans l'art, sans doute parce que je viens purement frappé des centaines de clous dans la restauration du toit de notre maison et beaucoup de 350 ans vieux clous forgés sorti ... et eu le temps d'y penser ainsi.

為什麼現在的博客,本領域的指甲,可能是因為我只是單純的打釘數百名在我們的老房子和許多350年老偽造指甲的屋頂重新拉出...等有時間去想它。

Почему сейчас в качестве блога, ногти в искусстве, наверное, потому что я просто чисто ударил сотни гвоздей в восстановлении крыши нашего старого дома и много 350-летних кованых гвоздей вытащил ... и так было время подумать об этом.

なぜ今、ブログのように、当爪が、私は純粋に私たちの古い家や多くの350歳の鍛造爪の屋根の修復に爪の数百人を襲ったせいか...引き抜かので、それについて考える時間を持っていました。

لماذا الآن بوصفها بلوق، المسامير في الفن، وربما لأنني ضربت مجرد محض مئات من المسامير في ترميم سقف منزلنا القديم والعديد من 350 عام المسامير مزورة القديمة انسحبت ... وهكذا كان الوقت للتفكير في الامر.
