I've been interested in painting since I was a young child. In order to meet my parents' demands for a "solid education", I compromised at that time to train as a graphic designer. This artistic profession was at that time much more "future-proof" for my family than studying art. And yet I was also able to realize my artistic ambitions with it. My tendency to constructivism is certainly partly due to my choice of profession at that time. I spent the years 1995 to 2000 in Buenos Aires/Argentina and started to study free painting there. This led me to the desire to leave the commercial side of my profession behind and concentrate solely on the artistic aspect. After my return in 2000 I decided to work as a freelance artist in my own studio. My complete work is to be assigned to color field painting. The theme that runs through all my work from the very beginning is colour. My central concern is to let it become present as my own pictorial reality. Although form has a certain significance for me, colour is the absolute priority. For me, colour is a living and changeable substance, which comes from the depth of the picture like a universal force. Colour, freed from meaningful representation, is sufficient for itself and its magic only really appears when the spirituality of the representational has also evaporated. My first works were created between 1996 and 1999 in Argentina. The sea of colours of the folkloristic robes, the morning and evening moods in the pampas, where the sky tones presented themselves in an unimaginable range of light colours, were perhaps the most lasting events for my work today. Inspired by the bright colours of nature and the translucent and clear light colours of the sky, which merge softly and gracefully into each other without creating a mixed colour, the colour gradient became my obsession. To get closer to the colours of light, to paint ever softer, more flowing and more delicate, but equally in powerful bright colours, is my unique selling point and recognition feature and at the same time my intention.
