"In late November last year, I received a text message from my friend Philipp Keel. “I’m seeing David Hockney in Los Angeles next week,” he said. “Do you want to come along?” Ignoring all the sensible reasons not to embark on a trip from Berlin halfway around the world, I went and booked a ticket straightaway."
The next 4 days Christoph spent walking the city, drawing, and hoping that the meeting would actually take place.
(The show "Hopes and Dreams" is on view at Ziehersmith Gallery in NYC from November 13 through December 21, 2018).
