What I love is, spring out of bed in the morning, watching snow falling on a winter day.
I want art to be resistent to verbalize, its territory where words cannot reach. As a void is such a condition. I see art. It's a container that holds an empty state of mind.
I do what I love. Jumping in the void is one of them. All I can see is beginnings. I always start out of blankness in which I inscribe, mostly in paint. A layered dialectic movement in stillness that paths to the core. Who s there?
Nothing is a thing. In my process the furthest concentration of thoughts paired with the maximization of my minimalist sensibility; I need to follow an unnameable and improvised stream of thought and feeling. Fascinating, that reduction and introversion can lead to expansion.
I concretize dialogues I believe in. An inner listening via reduction calling out the last drop. What is truth though it is all open? The image comes immediately but reveals slowly. Good, there's no way to saying that right, just a set of values about lightness in accepting shifting awareness as a state of human wisdom and self connection —Great things can be quiet. Or, little.
When suddenly a cat appears and a bird escapes up in the sky,— I sit with a cappucchino and imagine all the possibilities life can be.

the rug is going to be shown in several places ongoing. By time it will get more and more dirty.
Here, inside the showroom is a poster which pictures the image of the rug placed in Prospect Park before. The viewer looking through the frontstore inside sees the documentary of the place before and the present situation outside in once.

NYC, 2013

The stool was made by Sam Stewart. It ́s a copy of a 200 year old stool.
The floor drawing is a rethinking about that process. It can be repeated on different floors. It is flexible in its numbers of parts. You can step on the stool to get an overview of the drawing below.

To Blinky Palermo and the people of New York City

This series of painting is the result of trying to copy the image "Flipper" (1965) by the German artist Blinky Palermo. From the start I chose to give it 5 attempts. The empty space between work 2 and 3 is left free for the original, which I couldn ́t reach. About the title: In the years 1973-75 Palermo maintained a studio in New York City. After his return to Germany he created one of his most significant cycles of paintings " To the people of New York City", which was also his last completed work before his sudden death in 1977.

you talk too much

The cycle refers to Ellsworth Kelly, who prefers looking at paintings to talking about further explaining them. I also refer
to the RUN/DMC song of the same title.

99 Cans

Art Historical Institut, Bonn, 2011

99 Cans has been developed for the entrance hall of the Art Historical Institut Bonn, also, it relates to the silkreen "100 Cans" by Andy Warhol. In addition, this installation deals with the architectural requirements of this particular space, in consideration of its significance as an Art Historical Institute.

Byzantine and Ottoman

Kunstverein SUSI, Istanbul, 2011
two-piece wall painting, 100 x 300cm, 50 x 40cm/ spray paint on wall

In Istanbul the circle-shape is found as well in Byzantine as in Ottoman painting and architecture. But while in Byzantine there are mostly series of three circles standing next to each other in a line and mainly used for representing the figure of nimbus. Ottoman created almost exclusively patterns of circles where many shapes are strung together in a grid.

—does it work?

installation, project space of the Motorenhalle, Dresden, 2011

floor: chalk drawing, fully covering the floor, about 100qm /wall: 9-piece series of grafics: fotocopy on paper, framed

This work questions whether holy geometry and numerology is working.
A freely-modified reinvented traditional ornament, which is found in many ancient cultures meets the so-called numerologists "number of solutions".

My work relates to American Minimalism, including Hard-edge and Color Field painting. In some specific aspects I also draw from American Pop Art - Andy Warhol`s many silkscreen series in particular.
As a German artist, I find the American way of making art, beginning with the New York school onward, very different and interesting in general. I feel attached to the appeal of lightness this works offers, while it at the same time remains very concrete, as Minimal and Hard-edge painting does. Pop art also embodies these qualities.
Although it is already fifty years since the first works of Stella, Judd, Martin, Kelly, Bochner and others have been exhibited, I find Minimalism still contemporary when considered in terms of today. It presents art as an autonomous space and engages with a certain way of openminded perception. Also, it concerns economical and ecological aspects - The major factors of today, which define the global development. But for me, as an artist coming from an European background, the most important fact of Minimal can be found in the question:
How can something so simple and little -indeed- become so much and so strong?
From here, my artwork starts. Once within it, I am trying to understand art. I do not follow a straight logical path, but have a route: a process motivated by playfulness and intuition but also based on a clear concept, every artwork I do has, is my way of creating. I think my natural style of working adapts well to the kind of phenomenal, incomprehensible but also plain and solid impact American Minimalism has to me.
