Artist's Statement


My artistic work - both in the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional realm - is dedicated to the exploration of various polarities such as movement, stillness, space, form, matter or mass. 

Predominantly using ink, graphite and grease crayon, as well as pen and other often unusual drawing utensils, I create graphics that also share a parallel, common language with my structured and linear sculptures.

The experimental language of colour and form in the composition of the graphics is characterised by an intuitive, gestural character and a subjective feeling. Following the basis of Informel, my working method follows the same principle, but the work result is flooded with contemporary thoughts and ideas. 

The unification of different ambivalences, the abstract and the representational in a final form, accompanied by the striving for simplicity, for the original form, thereby determines my working process.


"I want to express what is intangible, what remains untouched.... To copy a naked body is not a feat. To reproduce a female nude is not to create a statue."  Aristide Maillol
