ABOUT MY WORK

Perceptions, aspirations and visions of a generation. - Captured in folkloric variety with the tenderness of a bemused romantic. The attempt to draw a gentle line from Caspar - David Friedrich und Thoreau, up to the transfigured Instagram pictures of the present. Revised pictures of postcard idylls and portraits which facing the distance, celebrate a bold escapism towards nature. Flora and fauna under attention. Associative reflections of music and online imagery, loosely linked with the own biography captured in paintings, objects and installations - filled with clarity, mysticism and vulnerability.
