My art work

In all my works, irrespective of the medium, there is an exploration of boundaries, areas, a kind iconography, open or closed. Although one work's initial position seems to be easy at first, complex optical illusions occur during longer viewing via different depth-effects, also appearing through the use of colors.


My art deals with the abstraction of forms which all come from my background working with the original figurative forms. All in all I had began with nude drawing over several years. In my paintings and drawings I extend the edges of left figurative aspects onto a clearly abstract and almost conceptual level.

My installations in space look into the subject of limited spatial conditions. Land Art, especially in the diverse
Namib Desert, includes the apparent infinity as a challenge. The idea is to create a contrast to the seemingly unlimited
space. Documentary Photographs remain as long-lasting means.
