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.

After a wonderful long weekend in Milan back to the drawing board… Another gouache on paper, 50 x 70 cm… I was experimenting with the background and trying to make a quite detailed surface more atmospheric. Quite challenging with dense gouache and layers that are not treated with fixative… still a long route to go what makes such experiments so exciting… J
