my career as a painter I paid a lot of attention to nudes.
I like the differences of the individual grace, vitality and
honesty expressed in the human body. In my opinion this matter
is often underestimated or denied by ambivalent standards
of social norms and values. In contrast with that, the nude
must be considered as an individual attempt to conceive a
true portrait of the human body; an artistic and monumental
contribution to human life and even to human culture. Within
this vision I try to find my way out as an artist. In the
beginning exclusively working after nature, now my nudes are
set in a more and more abstract cadre.
Another reality based on the awareness of the image of a painting
is far more important. The material of a painting, its color,
structure, texture rhythm and composition creates its own
rules to it. This reality doesn't give a mirror like copy
of a world outside of a painting, but can possibly express
something about the outside world.
Principally a painting is a concrete object that appeals and
expresses its own world. Hopefully a new sensed world of space
to explore as well for the painter as the spectator. Imaging
that world with the means of paint mutually should be the
goal of painting and art.
