MY POINT OF VIEW

WHAT I’m painting and drawing. HOW I’m painting and drawing. And WHY I’m painting and drawing. I’m a seeker as a painter, in search of answers and the single human takes centre stage. Not every small detail needs an explanation but it’s important to me to clarify the serious and ambitious background of my kind of painting. I’m speaking about the vision at this point, about my thoughts and the concept behind the canvas and all my pictures, colours and motifs. Why? Who keeps silent about his art has nothing to say in his painting. But art needs a voice. It’s a question of your standpoint: if you have a mind of your own as a painter, and if you can (and will) take a firm stand for every of your paintings as well as for your painting in a body. Of course a subjective perception. In short: my philosophy as a painter.
