Lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany
My work elaborates around environment, natural phenomena, and physical forces on earth and above.
My art’s motives are based upon my deeply felt fascination and appreciation for nature and on my friction with scientific sources and samples in museums and libraries. I feel as a researcher and perceive my studio as a laboratory.
Painting is my primary medium in which through the use of colors, layering, fragmenting my images I create powerful energy and suspense. Painting as emotional medium is not just a way to make the analytical approachable, but also to transcend science’s inherent sobriety into emotion and poesy.
