Artist Statement
Artist statement

The world I demonstrate in my work is our world, no doubt about that. It is the history of the 20th century which echoes through in innumerable events and in the destinies of hundreds of millions of people. The events and atrocities which took place originated for the main part in our own minds and, consequently, once again, lead to the circumstances to be seen and read on television, in newspapers and magazines today.  I see my work as set against this context.
 My drawings reveal an avalanche of images. Images of diverse origins – people, half-people, dogs and parts of dogs, disintegrating cars from which people, whole or in parts, come tumbling, the cars and the people sometimes resembling weird fish rather than anything else. Fish-innards, tables holding all sorts of items such as the small pyramids, artist’s tools, flower-vases, computers, a table-lamp, an owl, a crucifix – all of these joined by planks and ladders as well as flotsam-like constructions. And in amongst it all, people, individuals, attempt to stay on their feet and are united by a long table.  These people display a certain solemnity and dignity and form, as it were, an island of hope in an environment where it is hard to breathe and where not a beam of light can be discerned; subsequently organized in such a way that all these elements achieve a particularly compact structure resulting in an unusual totality of expression.
