About me

 


Want to know more?

My artistic creative process is spontaneous. I deliberately invite a certain amount of chaos, fortune and the possibility of happy coincidences into my studio and give them space while I work on my art.

My Artistic Process

My artworks are often created in series or as groups of paintings focusong on a common theme. Accordingly, the following pages are structured as “portfolios”: “Chasing the Invisible” and “Tachism Reloaded” represent two current groups of artworks. 

Further acrylic paintings on canvas are available online at SingulartSaatchi Art and Artfinder.com .

In the shop on this website you will also find abstract artworks on paper, most of them form the category “gestural abstraction” .

“Chasing the invisible”

Currently I pursue two themes
One idea is to paint the invisible – as an example, I artistically investigate the wind, a light breeze, a gentle movement of air – perceptible only through the effect that the movement of air has on objects in the visible world, bringing them into focus, letting them blow, flowing around them… 

“Tachism Reloaded”

The second theme is also related to the first aspect.
Painting is like riding a bicycle freehand – a well-controlled freedom. It is about the happy coincidences and unrepeatable moments that can happen when the subconscious takes the lead and guides the artist’s hand. This is an approach to process-oriented painting that is typical of Abstract Expressionism also known as informal painting.
