I wish you much pleasure in viewing my works
The medium of my painting is oil paint and indeed pure color - without additives. With the color, I express emotions, let power out off me and create dynamics. In this way of painting I try to capture the mood of both myself and those of others during this lifetime. Stress and restlessness are negatively charged, but as a style-forming part in the art they create tension - just the tension that has created expressionism, the style to which I feel affiliated. Of course, the works depicted here are only a part of my oeuvre.
I have always felt very strongly attracted to nature. Forests and coasts are magnetically charged to me, so it is only natural that nature should be included in my work. The fields beyond the urban development are actually pure head-births. They come from memories of travel that I have made or travel wishes.
I never liked the term Concrete Art. These are actually constructed images, constructions that go beyond our visual experiences and cause problems for the viewer. He reaches the limits of his habits and interprets the artworks so that he can work for them. But these interpretations often go beyond the goal, as they are beyond the mind and will of the artist.
The figurative images are mostly metaphors. They refer to philosophical or social aspects that move me or that I find inspiring. I like to pick up themes of art history. But it can also be figurative commissioned work without this further background. This is a completely independent series of works next to the constructive or non-objective images. The connecting feature is my dynamic style of painting, which runs continuously through my work.
