Artist Statement

Since five years I am concentrated on drawings in which I permanently follow a repetitive rhythem of lines by using coloured pencil or ink and sometimes watercolour on paper, wood or wall. Influenced by chinese and japanese landscape painting, nature, sky or clouds or as well as nature morte  I very much appreciate the white and the airiness in my drawings. In beween consiousness and reverie lines are made and concentrated to sometimes abstract sometimes figarative organic forms. In all of my drawings the aspect of space is present and in recent works it was of importance to free the line from the ground into space by using e.g. blackened branches, coloured bast or wire. The spectator is invited to move in space and to look also from different perspectives to the drawings. In general I am interested in expressing a kind of ongoing constant change of line construction similar to a slow-motion expansion of a voluminous cloud formation in space.
Within the development of my drawing, from this spatial impression in two-dimensional to the spatial drawing leads me consequently to the question of presentation an perception of drawing.
Not only transforming space as a gemetric-perspective construction but also as a result of moving, vivid lines, a kind of acting is essential in my work.
