About this website:
it is an old style design. I cannot add links, so you need to copy - paste.
Hopefully you get an impression with this rough overview of documentation.

In general it is better to see this on a pc screen. You can click on the small images to get larger view. Use the signs to the right or left, move the mouse to get this option.

Prices are not mentioned, of course the work is for sale; if you are interested don't hesitate to contact.

About my work:
development in my own words:

After studying in 1992 I started building installations. Later I focused on architectural objects with all kind of pouring materials for a long period of time.

During a few years of travelling in Sth. America (2005 - 2007); I choose to let go the artificial materials. Also I wanted to make more mobile work and travelling experiences had impact on my themes. It became partly less abstract. More free, experimental and maibe more playful. I put my goal on examining 2-dimensional work, because that felt like a gap in my capacities. Space and place related subjects did stay.

The experience of pouring and turning easily from negative to positive meant a lot when I entered the printing workplace. I fell in love with the embossment technique and developed this further. Related to the mouldmaking for seals, objects are coming out as well as photographic artworks.

Now I am developing spatial relief in paper on a larger scale; examining the borders. I would not call this 'printmaking art', I am thinking of spatial, almost sculptural unique work in paper. Currently a special Japanese paper brings me a step further in quality. The fluent paper has impact on the compositions and the mouldmaking.

Travelling to remote places still is a huge source for my work. Recently experiences of walking in natural reserves and volcanic islands (La Palma, Japan, Cape Verde) re-appear in my studio.


Due to the crisis, I am facing a new orientation in finding other contacts and professional network.
