Statement: Escape into another world
In my paintings I want to take the viewer into another world like mystical landscapes or situations, which almost seems to suck the viewer in. At the same time I want to catch the light in my works and simultaneously to break it, like crystals do.
My unique paintings are made in a process of countless layering with acrylic paint that gives them a strong depths effect. I’m painting on canvas with acrylic colors and my fingers!!!
Women and architecture are basic topics in my art works.
My collection of works titled “Wishhouse”:
there are paintings and drawings with utopic buildings without space or time boundaries.
At the one hand this works are describing the significance of the home like the motto: home is where the heart is and at the other hand they take the viewer into another world. For my works I’m using elements of my drawings which I have done from iconic buildings across the globe and put them together to imaginary architectural creations. I attend to create a world without space or time borders, with other words a world-united-open-house: my wishhouse!
Generally, my work moves in the border areas between painting and drawing, figuration and abstract, between illusion and reality.
