In my work I use a childish spontaneous language in combination with digital expressionism. Color and form are very important and so is the story of an artwork.
The actual work is often based upon a lot of elements that come to some kind of a “temporary” solution in the final result. Temporary because it always seems like this moment of peace between color and form is more like an agreement.
To tell a bit about how an artwork comes to life, it’s like getting a trigger from the news, another painting, a story or a memory and from there on the journey starts and everything changes – the often-told sentence – you have to live through a painting – is really true in my case.
