Orientation

The space of imagination is isometric, eternal, boundless, without any pole and vanishing point. Disoriented in the imaginary space, fall into the gaps of understanding. These interstices reveal the poetry of constructiveness.

when you load the horizon with weights, an imaginary space opens up: An unseen field of fruits not sown. I called it »virgin territory«



Intriguing Fantasy 


When I draw, I search, find and liquefy meaning.
The most poetical moment is, when thinking meets the corporeality, if intention and interpretive schemes coincide with presentiment and chance to create something new.
In the phantasm series I investigate what my mind does with the visual stimuli in the blind spot of consciousness. Starting from a random event of some blobs, I always draw the next one from its predecessor. In the process, the phantasm emerges, a linear structure formed by the structure of the mind.

Expect ambiguity

»Where does the expectation come from, that everything will be  identical in the morning, as it was in the evening, allthough everything is different in the day as in the night ?«


I follow the line on which the meaning falls over. The line from which the three semantic levels separate: image, symbol and the presence of material and gesture. I activate the search for an unambiguous interpretation, the creation of structure and order.

The drawings are multistable. There is no such thing as situational unambiguousness. One moment of recognition is spontaneously replaced by another, for seeing is a process of constant change, in which Perception and interpretation are constantly reorganized.



Allow complexity




When liquid ink hits the paper, it doesn't show what has to happen, but what can happen.

You can also make a difference. But if you try to plan everything in advance and to obey your rules, you  will  fail. Fortunately. Because reality is too complex.

I am often asked whether this or that mark arises intentionally or coincidentally. Coincidence benefits only those who want to recognize its possibilities, the other only gets in the way of it. We usually agree on intuition rather than intention.
