About my Art

Art can free itself wonderfully from constraints. It is said to be free of purpose. Is it really?

As a trained architect, I try to explore what painting can offer beyond the constraints of architecture.

Spatiality, structure, geometry, color, surface and texture.
All these themes from three-dimensional architecture can be brought to the two-dimensionality of the flat surface through layering, translucence, transparency, but also veiling or reduction and not necessarily through perspective.
The reliefs or folds of my paper works bring back the 3rd dimension.

My examination in painting explores largely abstract a connection of the sensuality of free coloring with disciplined geometry and the dialogue through combination, for example, also in diptychs.

For me, however, abstraction of form does not mean precise minimalism in the sense of a Frank Stella or Joseph Albers, but rather the stroke, the brush, the process of creation, the struggle of the artist must remain visible and radiate a liveliness. The geometric approach contrasts with organic forms that overlap. The process of creation, the dialogue between geometric clarity and the spontaneous painting process remains vividly visible. Legal rules must also be allowed to be disregarded. Thus, my art establishes a connection, it classifies, it is touching and inspiring, it is not purposeless.

The works are on paper, cardboard and canvas in sizes between DIN A 5 (21 x 14.8 to 120cm x 160cm or 98 x 210cm in mixed media, watercolor, acrylic, oil pastel, grease pencil, colored pencil and more.
