ARTIST STATEMENT

“My topic in painting: the HUMAN BEEING!”

“FIGURE and SPACE and MATERIAL and COLOUR” – these are the topics that have accompanied and intensely absorbed me in recent years.

“FIGURE and SPACE and MATERIAL and COLOUR” – this is the focus of mostly large-format, colourful works. They run like a recurrent theme through my work.

How are the figures placed in the space, in the room? And: where do WE stand – in general and in relation to each other? Posture as an indication of an identity.

I paint almost exclusively on wood panels. I like to mix different materials during the painting process such as, oil, pencil, chalk, stains, charcoal, all that leaves traces behind.

Trying out, daring, testing limits, overcoming.
