»THE HEART OF MY ART COMES FROM A PLACE WHERE THERE IS LIGHT.«

WHAT MOVES ME.

As a fine artist and as a person. As a painter and as a draftsman.

The inside and outside of my creative world. My thoughts and feelings. Contemporary abstract expressionism as I define it (for me). Why my painting is not a head-birth, but a great passion full of empathy and devotion. My past as well as my present and future creative way in word and in image. The following links lead to pages that give you an impression of the person behind the paintings and drawings. You will also find a very detailed interview with me about my artistic philosophy (under the menu item painting philosophy).

»OUR SOULS ARE MYSTERIOUS BUT WONDERFUL LANDSCAPES.«

There is one quote by the Jewish Bohemian novelist and short-story writer Franz Kafka that perfectly reflects how I try to act in my art, day and night and for every single painting:

»BEYOND A CERTAIN POINT THERE IS NO RETURN. THIS POINT HAS TO BE REACHED.«

Franz Kafka
