About this work:
the loud, garish consumer world pushes against the windows. Always faster,
further, higher. Sometimes, when it all gets too much, it's time to alight, to take
a step back and dip your head into the clouds - it's wonderful to have this
peace and foresight up here!
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.
