Sculptures. It's exciting to see people touch and move the objects. I like it when my objects incite the beholder to move them, change the blink angle, or change the communication within the group as he or she currently feels. Maybe it's also about limits. Borders between communities, regions or countries, boundaries in the minds and boundaries that you set yourself or the other set one. An interaction between art and viewer that I find valuable. I wish to scale up some of them so that the beholder feel as a part of an installation. Thinking about beyond borders.
Sculptures. A series of thin, slim and graceful sculptures designed in the middle of 2018, based on ink drawings from 2017. My mentality—that art should be for everyone—motivate me to create small sculptures, perfectly sized for table tops, shelves or puristic white cubes like shown above.

Drawings. Composition in the smallest format. A series of small square drawings made with gouache and oil pastels on natural cardboard. These small drawings are compositional sketches for large-scale implementation – a big challenge for the coming months.
Exhibition. From April 5 to 7, 2019, the 27th International Art Exhibition FORMART took place in Glinde near Hamburg. 42 selected visual artists from 8 different nations presented around 1,500 works from painting, graphics, photography, sculpture, object art and mixed media. I was very happy that the jury invited me to this exhibition.
Working on new bronze wall mounted panels and continuing the idea of combining my sculptures and paintings as objects. The wax models are in the foundry – and I’m looking forward to patinating. Not sure, if a shadow gap frame will look good, maybe the panels just float on spacers in front of the wall. […]
A long time I’m thinking to smallest bronze plates like an amulets or charm with an abstract minimalistic texture and surface. With a fine silver hoop, the small relief can be worn around the neck. The objects from modeling wax are now in the foundry – and I’m really looking forward to the first results. […]
