My themes always circle around the eternal and fundamental questions of human aspects.
With this picture I confront the viewer with my worried look at the future of children.
It shows different fragments of a world stage, which are combined into an overall composition. It is not the individual figures which stir or irritate, but the figures side-by-side within the stage on which they appear. I use different technical modes of painting and drawing to increase the tension in the picture.
The linear charcoal drawings of children dissolving in the surrounding color space, appear diffuse and mysterious. Child figures with gas masks, their eyes lowered, are standing next to a naked girl figure, who fearfully dares to look into the future. The figure in the background is thematically remindful of Munch's scream. It appears here as a monster-like figure that has strayed into the picture from the iconography of Graffiti or Manga. The right half of the picture is dominated by a large portrait of a girl. It stands in striking contrast to the glazing, semi-transparent painting technique in the left part of the picture due to the generous, dynamic painting style. Thereby the painting becomes a physical act. The vehemence and spontaneity of my painting style is part of the image statement and unveils some latent aggression in the girl.
The picture is a kind of mirror, reflecting one’s inner questions and feelings, a kind of filter of the inner reality. It aims at an active dialogue between the viewer and the image.
