ARTIST STATEMENT 
 

In my work, I research the essence.
I am concerned with the nature of things, I am interested in what lies behind something. The invisible, unexplored, unnoticed, unnamed, which - however - forms the basis of being. The drawing itself is a medium of immediacy, just like film photography or notation - which are important parts of my artistic work.

Both of these media can also be viewed as drawing.
It is therefore the most important element of my work, a tool that enables me to get to the bottom of things.
Furthermore, silence plays an important role during working. It opens up spaces that would otherwise remain closed to me. These spaces create the ideal conditions for my artistic process.
The movement of my body in the forest, the thoughts that come to my mind before falling asleep, the soothing hugs of my partner, the doubts and fears, all of these things influence my existence as an artist.

Although my creative process is deeply personal and intimate, the final work reflects on the universal existence.​ 
What remains is what is and always has been there, a neutral construct, which connects everything.
