 Landscapes of the mind
Biography and style : I move toward an art of thought, that takes reality only as a starting point , never as the ultimate goal

CHARACTERIZATION OF MY WORK

My work can best be described as lyrical-abstract.
Colour is very important for me : the alchemy of colour. This  defines for me the atmosphere of a painting.
Usually I work in many thin layers on top of each other. Each new layer gives inspiration for the following one, with new ideas.
Because of the different layers and colours, the acrylic paint gets depth and character.
In a  figurative work, there are sometimes two or more human figures present. That symbolizes for me  human relationships.

Laws

underneath colour and shape
there are laws
a painting must fulfill
an invisible framework
proportions
movement
limitations
one must be able
to enter the painting
and to leave it
the arrangement of the forms
is leading the phantasy
via the unknown
to the inner life

colour and form
forged together
with the laws
shaped by the artist
