ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Since 2001 I have been working as a committed and passionate painter. My picturesque passion is based on daily impressions, media influences and moods.
I turn everything professional skillfully in my own imagery and symbolism of inner experience to the outside. My means of artistic expression are mainly abstract acrylic painting and collage techniques. I work with elaborate filling techniques in which I apply several layers and remove a part of it again.
Because of that, my works are created with “thoughtfulness”. I have a special affinity for mixed techniques, using different materials and techniques. My artistic work is shaped in creative cycles. These individual cycles are based on intensive examination of the respective topic.
My artistic focus is on faceless figures, mostly female. At the beginning they are precise, then I abstract them more and more. Those sometimes ghostly figures are at times a reminiscent of sculptures by the sculptor Giacometti.
