VIEW IN MY ROOM
The repetition of my body movement and its interaction with the various materials is the work of art. My drawings do not depict the visible nor do they create an illusion. They make visible the process itself – the repetition of a movement that changes the material in its form. A movement that expresses a mental state is repeated and translated into a line. It is the transition of the form by the repetitive movement of drawing that is at the center of my interest. ... And I also love steak tartare, of course. Who does not? It’s a Diptych. The drawings belong together. They can hang next to each other or opposite each other. The size refer to one drawing. The drawing is delivered as a roll without a frame.

born in Weimar, Germany lives and works in Berlin and Zurich ___ I explore the movement of drawing. By repeating lines, numbers and phrases the concrete form assumes an abstract shape. In my work I deconstruct the process of becoming art and the creative act itself. By repeating seemingly trivial basic elements (point, line) and using standard everyday materials, the process in its reduced, repetitive form itself becomes an artistic work. The systematic, constant drawing of lines – as such writing numbers and words is also drawing - becomes a contemplative act. The process itself thus becomes a question of what is art? How is art created? What distinguishes me as an artist? This mantra-like questioning in the drawing results in an irresistible mental focus. In some way I make sure of myself over and over again, as if every line was a continuous confirmation of my artistic activity. The drawing becomes an expression of my physical and mental engagement with the creation of a work of art. Physical and intellectual movement merge in every line. This process of repetition endows me with a sense of identity. Every next line within the previously defined system contains all previous lines and still remains individual. Each digit and each line can be seen as independent. At the same time, the accumulation of numbers forms a larger single number and the accumulation of lines form an area, and assume a distinct new shape. The repetition of the same creates a new entity and the nature of the form changes in the process of repetition.
