I use the term "Art-Hybryd" for these works, as
it is art that includes 3 working methods: Macrophotography, computer-generated
layer technique and painting. By the mix of layer techniques I create image compositions that are characterized by pictorial depth and
diverse complexity of colour and form. Art creates art: the metamorphosis of a
photographically captured fragment into an abstract composition. Through the
complexity of my Macro layer-compositions I want to challenge our perception: what do I see? The
artworks give room to associations, dreams and illusions. Final layers of painting turn the prints on canvas
into an unique artwork.
digital process is used to create complex forms in an undefined pictorial space
by superimposing images, which enable a juxtaposition of inside and outside,
near and far, recognizable and blurred. Series with compositional variations
are created that move between reality and virtuality.
Photographs are "stopped,
preserved time", documents of the vanishing, the attempt to stop the flow
of time, to preserve something.
pictures concentrate on the essentials, become excerpts, snippets of the real.
In their reduction, they distance themselves from reality and become a reality
of their own through gestural overpainting or technical layering, becoming
lines, shapes and sounds: a simultaneous symbiosis and metamorphosis. I free
the pictures from their original surroundings and insert them into an unreal
space. They are documents of the vanishing, which through layering are not only
given an extension of life but also a new life.
photographs are therefore no longer a mirror of reality for me, but rather, and
here the painter speaks from me, a raw material that I use for the abstract
pictures, which are born from the painterly or technical processing of my
photographic material, show abstract new pictorial worlds that invite the
viewer to explore what they see.
Here you might see an ancient town, steps to a golden door in the background. The fragmentary structures of painting give room for associations.
