Artistic work

I seek to place the picture object in the unclear, in order let especially clearly step forward the moment of the fleeting, the already passed. The actual subject decomposes therefore into bright and dark areas and lines. Tangible, immaterial phenomena do not serve as a formation element in the construction of a new room. In the midpoint, the representation of light, room and time stands. The documentation of the existence is replaced by the description of the subjective perception of time and room and the energy of the light. To such an extent the idea and the movement of light becomes as a visual definition of time obvious.

Explored the entire bandwidth of the possibilities becomes of color and color effect, of areas and area effect, of expression and expression effect. I search for formulations, that commute between abstraction and Figuration. So the color plays a role not only as a koloristischer value, but rather the represented translates in its respective appearance forms or however solves itself as a picturesque intrinsic value of the object off in order to realize itself in the picture as a picture. Also here the picture object in the unclear is placed.

Film and Performance:
Perception functions as a dynamic process and permanent sequence of sensations, which constant information is lower puts. Against the background of the artistic contradiction between the objective-ness and the Substitutscharakter for another object, the decision falls out in favor of the reality of the picture, that is subject to artistically verifiable conditions,. To such an extent scenic panoramas that produce a variable optical structure emerge. Suggested movements run at the same time to the artifiziellen construct in the sense of an autonomous picture establishment.
