Sketchbooks

Drawings: Ballpoint pen on paper, all drawings were made from 2014 to 2017, and are summarized in sketchbooks 26 x 18 cm.

153 works were self-published in the book "Vanitas Vanitatum" in August 2017.

These sketches are imbued with the Vanitas memento mori theme. The spontaneity of the sketches is favorable to the flow of my ideas.

You can order the book directly from the artist.

but without numbering

Etching

Origin of the etching:

Copper plate etching is a form of intaglio printing technique in which the grooves in the plate are not created by cutting them out with a stylus (as is the case with engravings). The grooves in which the inks rest are created by exposing the copper to an acid that etches into the plate. Prints from such plates have existed since the second half of the 15th century.

Formats of 10 x 15 cm to 30 x 60 cm, created in the years 1985 to 2000

Prayer books

The Prayer books for the Office of the Hours, also known as the Breviary, for the Holy Cross Monestary at Heiligenkreuz, Lower Austria were illustrated by Michael Fuchs, a copy was presented presented to Pope Benedikt XVI during his visit to the monastery in 2008. The three upper drawings illustrate the Benedictus, the Magnificat and the Nunc Dimitis,  the fourth one shows King Davis, the author of the Psalms, dancing for joy at the Ark of the Covenant. The Breviary consists to a large extent of Psalms. The Breviary is called the prayer of the church and all clerics and religious are required to pray it at least 3 times a day. The four illustrations were rendered in pencil on paper.
