WHY I PAINT. WHAT I PAINT FOR.
HOW I PAINT. WHAT I PAINT.
It’s more than the canvas, its colors and lines. Contemporary abstract expressionism, as I understand it: the ideas behind the painting, the search for the essence. I’m a seeker as a painter, in search of answers and the single human takes center stage. Not every small detail needs an explanation, but it’s important to me to explain the serious and ambitious formal background of my painting. My vision, my thoughts and the concept behind my art. Of course it is subjective. And it works beyond brush and stroke. Summarized: my philosophy as a painter.
Below you will find the transcript of a very detailed interview that I conducted with editors of a German art magazine in the fall of 2019 and that certainly helps to better understand my point of view and my artistic approaches. An English translation of this interview in German will be available shortly. You can also open and / or download this interview as a pdf document:> INTERVIEW: MY MALPHILOSOPHY (pdf)
