As long as I can remember I was fascinated by water

In my painting I have found my own way of interpreting water. I paint the calm, the flowing, the foaming, the bubbling and the wave-breaking water. In search of the blue, I rediscover new shades of color, again and again.

I paint with a mixture of acrylic paint and color pigments. The color can be watercolor-like or impasto process.

My painting surface is cardboard. In contrast to the canvas, cardboard has a life of its own. Lying on the floor, this living painting ground works sometimes for me, sometimes against me, makes puddles develop or absorbs the color in itself. I edit the format from all sides and stand in the middle of the picture. Aggressive phases with chop-like brushstrokes from the movement of the whole body, alternating with a calm, meditative view. I paint color and shape on top of each other. The image acquires structures, grows together, tensions and movements arise, it begins to shine.

After the painting process, I glue the resulting image onto a wooden frame. Through the subsequent partial application of paint, I set accents and feel the surface of water – a further image plane and reflections arise. Through the reflections, the painting looks different in every light, just like water, which also always reflects a different color, depending on the light and ambient colors.

Water – for me a topic which eminates a very special fascination.
