I'm a child of a Catholic priest. I'm not supposed to exist. According to the Catholic religion my existence is forbidden. All proceeds from my paintings are used for the fight for human rights for children of priests.
This is not my dimension... it never was... nothing makes me as sick as people... living out creativity is the only one thing that stops me from ending my being here.
"Painting is not about painting. It's about thinking." Gerhard Richter
"Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art." Andy Warhol (...so I have to learn a lot ;))
"Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it."
"I kind of do the drawing with the painting in mind, but it's very hard to guess at a size or a color and all the colors around it and what it will really look like."
There is no bigger art in the world as integrated circuits at the moment!
The main topic of my artwork are components of electronic machines such as computer parts and their particular aesthetic quality.
Circuit boards gifted with refined beauty fascinate me. Not only what meets the eye but also the concept and illusion of the "ghost in the machine" put a sell on me. Their enigmatic potentialities, their abilities, their influence on our lives and with that - our actual dependency on them.
As a layman I try to understand how they work and give us the impression that they can think and have a conscious mind. And every time I am confronted with electronic machines I realise their extraordinary abilities.
So my artwork is also a tribute to all those anonymous engineers who design circuit boards. It is the unintended artist in the engineer that deserves acknowledgment.
And the rhythm fascinates me: iterative elements convey a sense of dependability / reliability and steadiness. And on circuit boards are plenty of repetitive elements. Clean in their simplicity, they arrange new compositions, new shapes, new pictures. I see them as a garden or a map or a landscape or an architectural plan of a futuristic building or nothing of that, just the mood, and I try to catch those impressions and make them obvious.
The circuit board are, in fact, very simple in their construction: one input, the way to the next electronic component and one output - a blueprint for an easy life! ;-)
