About Me

My photo
Leipzig / Germany and Winterthur / Switzerland
We all carry information. Ordering and translating such into my world of pictures is the subject of my work. I often start with photo sketches which I transfer using different methods. This not only strengthens reality, it also puts it into perspective, expressing my current state of understanding. It invites the viewer to search for the core of the matter.

Today's focus was to draw with charcoal - a crumbling experience... but much better - for insiders - than listening to a webcast ;) Unbelievable that I just recently did my luggage, as illustrated below... Your feedback is always very welcome...
