motivation and intention
My work focuses on texture and abstract color(-field) compositions. Based on traditional media and techniques, such as canvas, paper, timber board, painted with acrylic and mixed media.
Discreet colors, surface structures and textures of the environment and nature inspire me, creating new abstract compositions or restructured textured paintings. One focus of my work are reduced paintings in color and texture. The works reflect my attitude of life and of painting 'less is more'. In times of overload of visual impressions, I try to send the viewer on a journey of discovery across the painting surface and sensitive him for the few and less in color, structures, cracks and textures. “Material, color and composition, a perpetual challenge to create something new “
