 I was trained as a photographer but then mainly used images to create "paintings" with Photoshop. Unsatisfied with 2- dimensionality, I soon also started to do  objects and other mixed media works. I treat each single work as genuine, with a narrative point of its own instead of just being minor to a theoretical  concept.

 In recent times I turned to figurative painting on paper and canvas. I love working with material in different ways and in a rather simple, "classical" way. The process of materialization helps me to focus on my true motivations. It keeps me grounded and in touch with my skills

 My work provides many possibilities of interpretation and layers of formal presence. It's charged with symbolics and speaks directly to the viewer, on the other hand it keeps an enigmatic and undefined aspect.

 I prefer a playful and varied approach to doing art, not to be fixed to a certain media, concept or subject. I treat each single work as a genuine output with a narrative point of its own instead of following a theoretical  concept. Doing so, I use from history whatever suits me to make my own images. It's an adventure where I can meet with hidden aspects of myself and ideas originating from the outside world, the work's progress or elsewhere. In doing art,  I just serve a source of inspiration which endlessly offers images to the mind. It's about a curiosity towards what is there to be detected. 

 The more complex our world grows, the more important security has become in order to defend the needs of the individual. To guarantee security, we pretend that we can control everything fully. Through digitalisation we create more and more interactive and multi- responsive possibilities to always enable the distance or control which we feel is needed to keep our comfort zones and not get in touch too closely with our subject matters. 

 My work is about the dephts, fears, gaps and difficulties we avoid to confront in relationships and the existential matters of fact which are hard to face but truly rule our existence. A statement that there is no true growth or life without considering its whole dimension.
