I consider my artistic work which I call „Defiguration“ as a process in the search for shape (form).

I penetrate the manifold areas of forms and their meanings, analyse them and reveal their coherences by continuous and gradual abstraction.

I unravel them more and more to find (or try to find) ultimately a synthesis, the essence, the fundamental structure.

A pattern, that resembles an insect at times, and through that changes the original meaning.

At the end of such a search is the formal and compositional balance.

I not only reflect, but also try to catch those forces that are part of the original dynamic context (one of the goals is to intensify and dynamise the expression.

The expressiveness of potential and permanent movement I accentuated through compositorial lines.
