b 1972 Dresden . Lives and works in Düsseldorf.


“I picture the world in which I want to live.”
Having escaped the microcosm of blooming, new, unseen, baroque, ecstatic formations appear, fleeing from the three-dimensional world, they seek to free themselves from past and present and simply be immersed in the eternal momentum of the present.
Full of being, or devoid of everything. I sketch a euphoric model of cosmic structures in which an increasingly unbridled sense of presence takes ownership of its own paradisiacal world order through a defoliation towards the centre of the abundance of light. 
In the current cosmic phase, which might last an entire human lifetime, the Creator removes itself from the flow of time and designs an eternal moment which knows neither beginning nor end, nor submits to the rhythm of day and night.
