Working process of art


In the working process of his art are used the different modern multimedia technologies. Objets trouvée, i.e. accidentaly foundes or consciously searched objects like underwear, postcards, magazine-cuttings or clothes and other pieces, which should stand in relationship to the persons going to act in the pantings, are scanned or stick of and distanced.


Later at the process the objets trouvées will be painted over. Photos are involved and also videograbbings from videoperformances.


Affected to the new added paintings some levels are arising and others are dissapearing. The artist likes to add sheets taken from old scetch-books of his own. The paintings over are done in different techniques.


He sets high value on an expressive stroke of the brush, the free modeling of the figures, the bursting of the colors under releasing the original form.
