“Solipsismus II”
100 x 70 cm, Öl auf Leinwand
It took me over 43 years to continue the subject of my painting “Solipsism”,which was created in 1974 (when I was 21) Again, this subject is an expression about freedom,when your thoughts have sunk deeply into yourself. You know this feeling to throw down any burden ? And when you are able to be focussed on the essentials of your physicality – without any limits? Enjoy …

Pigs are intelligent living beings. So, why shouldn’t they have corresponding daydreams ?

For example about people and her peculiarities ?
And finally, the pig imagined people would lose a very special talent:

The ability to lie !

At this idea, the pig had to laugh …

As regards the sound mix, I was supported for this painting by: Pleq , Antonymes , Lunar Semaphore , Stabile-Speaker-Gain , Siavash Amini , Joep Beving , Eloi Ragot and others.

“Abyss II”
mixed technology,oil on canvas,70×50 cm,build between august – november 2016.The second piece of my series “Underwater World” is now ready after three months work.

The Picture shows a journey to the areas of the subconscious.There the observer experiences a state of suspense and hallucination in a surrealistic room. A kind of “magical mystery tour”.This work personally also meant for me a small time travel back to the seventies (A decade proclaiming: legalize drugs)

The work was musically supported by a sound mix  and the most important artists were Siavash Amini,Deaf Center,Otto A Totland,Androgynous Dark,Octave Minds etc.

“Augenblick mal II”
mixed technology,oil on canvas, 40x70cm

 The first picture which I have painted in my new studio of the GEDOK in Lübeck. And it is the second interpretation of the topic “consciousness”

The intensity of a closer look behind the surface of a dead piece of wood makes new experiences possible: Perceptions of a mystical parallel world in which there is much to discover – and a little film is so made in front of the intellectual eye of the recipient.

Supported was the work by a Soundcloud-mix: Black Vines,Sigur Ros, Saffronkeira, Holographic Field,Bersarin Quartett, Pleq, Multicast Dynamics and others.

Oil on canvas,70×100 cm,made between december 2015 – january 2016,

This is the last picture made in my studio in the palace “Plüschow” It is a memory of my personal past of the seventies. A past in which under the influence of hallucinogens new worlds were created.

So “Interstellar Overdrive II” is a head journey in a world of impressions , in which magic mushrooms play a special role.
Inspired by Pink Floyds Title “Interstellar Overdrive” and a sound mix from Black Dog, Craig Armstrong, Katahimikan,Muncroof, Brahms, Otto Totland, Nils P. Molvaer etc.

Just imagine that you follow a bear living in a deep and dark forest …

the human head,skull,looks – whether man or animal – merge into each other.As a river that takes you to a new level of your subconscious emotions. There is much more to discover when you will take a closer look …

mixed technology,oil on canvas, 50x70cm

The starting point for this november/decembertopic was a dead piece of wood, which can tell you much more than perhaps thinks at first sight …

… it tells about a world of mysticism, mythical creatures and a landscape.Various forms of the life combine with each other and tell her own story so.

“Gullivers Reisen 2.0”

The movement of a woman in two phases and the change of scales are the topic of “Gulliver’s Travels 2.0”

The represented situation is a projection surface for the individual associations of the observer. Desire,hurt,mysticism is an abstract room for different interpretations. A soundtrack of Liquid Soul, Nick Warren, Labyrinth, Nils P. Molvaer and others served as a stimulant.

It isn’t everything Go(l)d what shines …

Sigmund Freud assumes, that in every man also exists a dark side.This acceptance is the reference point for my third picture from the “Plüschow cycle”.Following the principles of decalcomania a parallel world of characters gets alive.The precipices of these protagonist is increased by the use of the golden color iconographically.

This work was influenced also by a sound mix of Echo Grid,massergy,Loscil,Nils Frahm,Nils P. Molvaer Deaf Center and others.

“Little elephants like strawberrries “
70×90 cm,Öl auf Leinwand,

Das zweite Bild aus dem “Plüschow-Zyklus 2014” folgt der Stimmung “Aus der Dunkelheit dem Licht entgegen”.

Unterschiedliche Individualsymbole verdichten sich zu einer Reise mit zahlreichen Stationen. Assoziationen von Bedrohung, Schmerz, Mystik stehen im Gegensatz zu spielerischen Elementen. Am Ende einer magical mysterie tour mag jeder für sich entscheiden, welche Rolle eine Erdbeere spielen kann …

80×60 cm,Öl auf Leinwand,

Erwartung, Hingabe, Vertrauen, persönliche Kontemplation, Durchdringung und bei allem ein Gefühl von Freiheit.

Mit diesen Begriffen lassen sich am ehesten die Stationen einer “Kino-im-Kopfreise” beschreiben,dass das erste Bild aus dem Atelier in Plüschow 2014 beinhaltet.

“In between words”

Aus der Grundstruktur eines Stück Holzes abgeleitet.

Aus der Grundstruktur eines Stück Holzes abgeleitet,verdichten sich assoziative Dinge zu einem Fluß von Eindrücken.Abgründiges wie auch Absurdes gehen aufeinander ein und schaffen eine Welt,die sich nicht gerade dekorativ darstellt,sondern auch mit Ängsten umgeht.

“XXXtinische Madonna mit Kind”
70 x 100 cm ,Oil on Canvas,

Der kunsthistorische Topos der “Sixtinischen Madonna mit Kind” ist der Bezugspunkt des zweiten Bildes, das während meines Aufenthaltes auf Schloß Plüschow entstand.

Anders als bei gängigen Interpretationen dieses Themas, wird hier Sexualität nicht ausgeklammert.Der ehemals kirchliche Kontext mit seiner Moral erfährt eine Körperlichkeit,wie ich sie sehe.
