about my art


It is important that my work contains a vibrant energy.

Of sorts.

I want to capture that which initiates or completes.

The critical moment before the explicit outcome of a decision is possible to ascertain. I want to leave room for a great deal of ambivalence in the spectator. We don´t always make it easy on ourselves. But we communicate. Somehow. Autonomous from spatial realities.

Art as interactive speech bubbles.

I want to pose questions, I don´t provide answers.

I adore the beauty of the uncouth and the slightly crude.

I guess that´s why the knife is my tool when painting. I find knives easy to control and I love the sharpness, the edginess of it´s proceedings within the texture of the paint.

To control it I have to hold my breath, so we´re both under an equal amount of pressure. 

Truce as a artform.


When photographing or making shortfilms, I pretty much behave in the same way, I dont look for absolute cleanliness. I want a certain amount of edge to remain.

To cause some trouble.

To stir something.

So why not sell the artist on t-shirts, mugs, posters and on stickers?

Let us keep everyone happy and content.

Let us do some serious shopping.

A complete store with a register, fancy bags and clothes rack were displayed in the gallery.


Interesting fact

The  registered visits per day escalated with more than  300% compared to earlier exhibitions over the last years at the very same gallery.
