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.
