Lines and strokes by pencil or brush produce form, space, motion. They give clear significance by strength and color and equally by letting blank the paper. Every stimulation comes from outside. As an answer to this drawings and paintings create the world outside new.

It's a matter of arguing with the world around me. I have to find my position and – possibly – get echo. In my work I reduce nature to landscape. So it becomes concrete, (maybe harmless?) and a place of desire, where emotion and thought may find a place to stay a while.

Landscape is everywhere, there doesn't exist no landscape. You only may fade it in favor to something subjectively important and interesting. For me landscape is a synonym for nature and nature a synonym for indifference. Since ever nature makes me feel committed/abandoned because of it's capriciousness and fascinated because of it's beauty.

Concerning the approach to humans there is a diversity of sensual and intellectual possibilities at my disposal. So I don't „need “the medium of artistic creation. Therefore humans seldom are topic in my work.

Face to face with nature for me there only remains the possibility of representation of my highly personal sight of landscapes - always without contradiction: nature doesn't reply.
I put myself against this indifference, make lines and strokes, drawing I leave traces, preferring dark ones on a light base (paper), but also cultured ones.
