OIL ARTWORKS

For more detailed information on oil painting techniques please expand.


Both abstract and expressionistically reduced naturalistic painting have always sparked my interest. Ideas and methods from e.g., Cezanne, van Gogh, Picasso, Braque, Gris, Matisse, Dufy, Münter, Kirchner, Schmidt-Rotluff, Nolde, Peymann, Hessen, Mondrian, Hopper, Pollock, Rothko, Klein, Stella, and Dzubas serve as my preferred role models. Based on the inspiration I received from studying great artists, I try to find my own formal language and content orientation. A major focus of my work is the creation of colors that contain bright luminosity incorporated in their own environment. Keeping apparent contradictions in a well-balanced equilibrium seems to me as a particular artistic challenge – like a mirror of daily life. My basic principle is that art should inspire and delight, emotionally and intellectually.

Between 2016 and 2018 I have developed a unique concept which serves as a certain basis for my coloristic work: matt, bright, monochromatic oil-on-canvas-plates are magnetically attached to a corresponding metal panel mounted on a wall. You can easily change the position of each table. For example, if 16 colored plates are used, more than a billion different combinations could result – you may create by yourself a novel artwork every single day of your life.
