I dream to be myself, to reveal life.
I love to be carried by the elements of jazz music while painting. I like to feel this free energy, it helps me to turn my innermost outward. With my abstract painting I want to depict through colors and shapes the inner ways, the origin of emotions. The inner not visible form is shifted to the outside-externalized.
Then from the depths come my sensations and they demand a new way of expression.
With symbolic images I reach new dimensions of the senses. I use original images as a creative source, as vectors for new expressions of life.
The year 2017 was the trigger for this awakening. Many events have marked this change and several exhibitions in Germany and one in France have supported this development.
My painting represents an open door to the imaginary. I emphasize a fine line between figuration and abstraction.
Starting from an undefined theme that develops through travel, readings, symbols and encounters, I give the observer on the one hand an impulse and on the other hand also the freedom to escape it.
It is the story of an emancipation, of an escape from the confinement that I have created for myself. All the real or imaginary chains that restricted or paralyzed me.
My sources of inspiration.
Are music, philosophy and my feelings.
My role models.
Are Kandinsky, Richter, Turner, Rothko and Cézanne.
But also the European and Japanese expressionists and the German “Bauhaus” movement.

The paintings shown here differ in their pictorial structure.
Some of them are characterized by the repetition or condensation of a given motif, others show a geometric design.
The structure of my pictures turns the (conventional) idea of depth upside down. The contrasts of foreground and background as well as the relation of verticality and horizontality characterize the linear perspectives.
On the one hand, it is my painting technique based on the power of the creative hand, which brings dynamics into the picture. On the other hand, it is the vibrating texture of the image that evokes the sensation of non-objectivity / immateriality and feelings in general by omission. This is both a wake-up call of a separate identity and a push.
With my semi-objective art I try to pursue a style that transfers the line to become subject and completely changes the (common) idea of depth through the contrast of foreground and background. Through abstraction I merely suggest the figurative, do not force it on the viewer.
With the help of shapes, colors and symbols I combine order and chaos, delicacy and coarseness, speech and silence.
It is a paraphrase of life, a representation of transience, of eternal changes as the only unchanging law of the universe.
Drawing is an expression of a sensibility, a source of feelings/emotions. When drawing, I, as an artist, process the impressions of the environment and give it a personal vision of this world.
The artist who draws in a simple way projects his inner world into the drawing and interweaves it with the outer world.
With the intuitive drawing he creates a surprise. That means he reveals an unknown and new world, comparable to an apparition.
Art is about revealing what exists within us. This concerns both the artist himself and the viewer who is engaged with the work.
“A picture lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes of the sensitive observer. It dies by the same token. It is therefore risky to send it out into the world.” Mark ROTHKO, The Reality of the Artist.
“When the Soul wants to experience something she throws out an image in front of her and then steps into it.” Master ECKHART
