The colors of the north of Germany influence my art. At times the entire landscape seems to be dominated by a yellowish glowing green and dove-like or darkly looming grey.
Sprinkled across this only seemingly empy pastoral are the creatures many consider blunt and somewhat dumb-witted, ignoring the benign gracefulness with which they are oblivious to the passing traveller.
Images of my travels constitute a further aspect of my work which is almost exclusively realised in oil on canvas. Staying in Japan shortly after the quake and nuclear catastrophy created a bond to the girl in my who was not allowed to play outdoors after April 26th 1986.
Today, what fascinates me most are everyday visual encounters that seem worthwhile realising in oil paint. Yet, the most mundane items often pose the highest challenge.
