“Nature does not exist on the surface, it goes deep. The colors are the expression of this depth on the surface. They rise from the roots of the world. They are their life, the life of ideas. ”
Landscapes are at the center of my painting, and I am particularly fond of the sea.
At the moment my way of working is developing in a new direction.
I work more abstractly because I believe that this way I can dive more under the visible surface. I want to show landscapes how I perceive them, their energy, calm or dynamism. To do this, I have to go beyond simply depicting what I have seen or photographed.
“Artist” and “writer” – that’s how I define who I am and what I do. I also found other terms for myself:
I am a seeker. Maybe that’s why I’m a traveller.
I like to travel, I am curious. Not just to other countries, to other people.
I look for my way through the world of creative expression, experiment with different materials and techniques.
In my blog I take my readers on my artistic journey. I think about art and everyday life, let you look over my shoulder while painting and show new works. And in between I tell about interesting books or artists who inspire me.
