Painting | Drawings

Though I’ve been doing all kinds of things in my life I am still a painter. What you see on the following pages is a selection of works from the last 25 years.

There are two diametrical positions from which I constructed my work:

  1. In most cases I used photos of nature, people, situations of every day life as a copy. Though the results may be abstract and non-representational, the photos were important reference points.
  2. The production-process usually starts with finding the right format, which led to complex, three-dimensional “architectures” of combined formats. The formats may build some kind of rhythmical structure like the letters and words in a written text.
