VIEW IN MY ROOM
That wolves return - or better: that we set the framework within which we allow the wolves to return - does not mean that we do not fear the wild, the untamable, darkness of the wilderness. Or that we hold it in less low esteem. Or even that we stop pushing it back. The wolf, cherished, monitored, preserved in its target population - and, if it jumps the fence and does what wolves do, hunted as well - is back ... while the wilderness itself, as a whole, is dwindling. By the way, also the one in ourselves. And far beyond the German "forest dieback." The wolfish in us is that we destroy the wilderness, in which the wolf would have its place. The wolf that one does not see is more threatening than the one that one sees. The color is my voice. I work intuitively, let myself be guided. In my abstract works even more than in the representational painting. Often it is not yet clear to me what wants to come to the surface. I am moved by personal, emotional - but also social and societal issues. I experiment with different materials, apply the paint layer by layer in glazes. This allows the light to penetrate the different layers and is reflected from the depths in some places. It thus becomes part of the artwork. What does it illuminate? Everything that occupies the artist - on the surface and perhaps even first in the depths. The work of art is then finished, then thriving, when it brings the different layers into harmony. The painting offered here is entitled "Forest, fading..."

Being an artist helps me connect with the world, classify experiences, arrive - An act of searching and an act of understanding. With watercolor and ink, charcoal, graphite, pastel, and acrylics, I explore the boundaries and transitions. My artistic origins lie in figurative painting. However, it is and was never about illustrating the visible to me. I want to go into depth. I have found that the more I abstract, the more concretely I am able to represent what I want to express. Both my figurative and abstract paintings benefit from this apparent contradiction. I paint to discover, simplify and understand what is important, true, or relevant. What lies beneath is the enduring theme of my work. My artistic gaze is focused primarily on the most vulnerable spot. This is probably common to all my paintings, regardless of the subject. This spot I want to cherish, flatter, protect - or also highlight. I am moved by personal, emotional - but also social and societal issues. Transience, defenselessness, the struggle for identity and dignity, the loss or destruction of the alive are, among other things, the topics that impose themselves on me, that demand my voice - and my voice is the color. My entire approach is characterized by immediacy. I work intuitively, letting myself be guided. In my abstract works even more than in figurative paintings. I experiment with different materials, apply the paint layer by layer in glazes. Therefore, the light can penetrate the different layers and is reflected from the depth. The light thus becomes part of the work of art.
