Of the beauty of the ephemeral

It is no coincidence that I also remain true to my preference for the multi-layered use of materials in the figure paintings: only a pictorial structure of this density makes it possible to create a spatial depth and substance that is not only an aesthetic carrier, but also a synonym for life itself: Like the annual rings of a tree, it expands from year to year.

Fractured material spots, color lines and grandiose shapes

Not sensory pleasure, but the anticipation of it

While the outer shell shows increasingly clear traces of aging, it gains – for those who look behind the facade – mysterious, deep, very own beauty. The female and male figures depicted in the works often show themselves unveiled in the broadest sense: in these works I am concerned with ‘nudity’ in the sense of the unadulterated, beyond embellishing, (teasing) charming veiling and above all beyond the flawlessness that is striven for on all sides. My interest is a beauty of the human body, which is undoubtedly subject to transience.
