Painting as a conceptual language
I use all kind of materials and content matter, related to different periods of time, art historical references, personal associations and places on earth. My focus is to tackle the icons and well known images of the western art history and the underlying ideas. For every individual painting I use a different style and method, which fits the specific content of the painting.
Patterns form a universal language. They often traveled from one country to another. Their abstract appearance transcends local and personal matter. I want to find similarities and surprize me about differences between people.
In the series Interventions I look back at some old master paintings or old photographs from a 21th century point of view.
