Artist Statement
“I started painting non-objectively 15 years ago during my studies with Thomas Bechinger, who was teaching in the studio projects at the time. As a student of Bechinger, my focus was on colour field painting, the roots of my non-objective pictorial art. At the moment I am working intensively on gestural painting and in the future I would like to deepen my work on this spontaneous painterly element of abstraction.

The forms in my paintings are generated from experiences I have made in my life. I translate these into gestures in my paintings. This can happen consciously or unconsciously, the latter being more the case with me. Sometimes I can no longer read what those forms tell, and I believe that the viewer of my paintings interprets them later from his own perspective, his own way of looking at things. He compares the forms with his own experiences. When I start a painting, I don’t have an exact idea in advance of what it will eventually look like. When I paint abstractly or gesturally, I do not work conceptually.

The character of the material is essential, the material is part of the art, it is what it is made of. Every medium has a special quality. Burlap or a very coarse canvas swallow the paint, I have to bear that in mind … Certain papers can cause the paint to lie thick and dense because of the smoothness of their surface. In this case, I also process paint in this way: I scratch the paint mass and can thus structure it. There are also papers that are very absorbent, in which case it’s the other way round. I mix my colours myself with pigments I have selected. Recently I have also been working technically according to the teachings of the Austrian painter Giselbert Hoke, who experimented with distemper for decades and used it to create large-format abstract compositions on paper.”
