ARTIST STATEMENT

The theme of my paintings are built environments or architectural details. In the phase of research I photograph them as a conceptual sketch. On the basis of these photos compositional drawings develop, usually in several steps of abstraction. These are the foundation for my paintings.

The urban space is being reduced until only monolithic architecture remains in front of a wide horizon. The sculptural effect of architecture in the landscape lets me focus on the two central aspects of my painting: color and light.

Inside the strict framework of the composition I grant more space to chance in the painting process. Abstract and gestural areas alternate, complement each other and change the composition. I am experimenting with the materiality of painting in oils in different conditions – liquid or pastose. The surfaces vary between solid and dispersing.

Currently I am researching distinct architectural styles in post-war modernism and the so-called „Brutalism“.  The overlay of utopian concept, reality and ruin create the field of tension for my painting.
