Paintings and Drawings

Artist Statement

part of a painting

It’s all about feeling. It is the painters ultimate expression. A brushstroke is a word. Many brushstrokes are a story. This is my story.

I am a self-taught painter and developed my drawing and painterly skills in the last few years.

Before that time, I never painted although I had some creative expressions in young adulthood.

The process is an investigation into what moves me. An investigation that will never end because of “panta rhei”: everything is moving, everything is always evolving. I am always evolving.

And every research for a painting becomes a part of myself and invites me for new research. A never ending story.

My paintings are between figuration and abstraction. From the observable world I make my own translation into a drawing or painting. Sometimes this is a fairly realistic image, but it can also be an abstraction or a combination of both.
