« I am driven by emotions. My art emerges from the urge of expressing a certain feeling and translating it on the canvas, thus letting the creation process take over and lead to the final result. »

 

I have always been painting, for as long as I can remember.

As a teenager, I started working with different techniques and materials, different styles, so the paintings mostly looked very "experimental". It took a while to find out where I was "at home", technically-speaking. My painting style changed with the time, the artworks became more and more elaborate, the creative process more grounded.

 

I am a spontaneous painter and always need music in the creative process. My artworks express feelings, moods, inner pictures and nature impressions - therefore, the outcome is always different. Some paintings are light and airy, others are witnessing a dark mood or are bright and colourful like a summer day. There is no sketching before starting a new piece, but mostly a vague idea with regard to color palette and composition. This idea expands during the process, giving space to spontaneity. The process gets a self-dynamic. I prefer working with acrylics and mixed media on large canvas and I seldomly use brushes. Instead, I am using my hands, palette knives or the paint is just being dripped. My work has been influenced by Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism.

 

In November 2019 I have established the gallery ZContemporary in Hamburg, Germany. For more information about the gallery work please visit www.z-contemporary.com.
