About "architecture abstracts":
In this new series I give an outlook on the consistent further development of dissolution and superposition. Although the basic architectural elements can still be sensed the pictorial space it getting more and more fragmented. Color and surface of concrete architecture dissolves into the space of abstraction. The matter seems to be slowly crumbling, one is not sure what one believes to see. And even here: it’s a matter of belief.
About my work in general:
I question our world and our view of it. The conditio humana - the nature of man and the human being as creator and destroyer is crucial in most of my works. Due to the inhomogeneity of the used pictorial elements I create new thematic references. In my collages, I combine various photographs of nature, architecture with painted fragments and structures. Time and space, new and old, overlap both in form and substance. I create mysterious and atmospheric scenes that leave room for the viewers own interpretations and associations.
About my technique and Material:
With my specially developed technique, I transfer the digital artwork into an original work in which the haptic materiality plays a major role. In a complex process the artwork is printed on a canvas which is covered completely with leaf silver and then poured into epoxy resin. This gives the works an optical depth and a special quality of the surface. The silver in the background makes the colors shine from the inside out - so the pictures have a different appearance from every angle.
