Tought by my grandfather, the German painter Otto Gloßmann, I began with realistic painting. Since 1985 predominates abstract painting with references to abstract expressionism. I paint intuitively and emotionally: I want to trigger impulses that try within the meaning of Antoni Tàpies, the soul of the viewer to vibrate. I want to create images in the mind and in the heart of the viewer, my painting as a medium that captures the imagination of others.

The art historian Gerhard Charles Rump about me: "Mayrs paintings in their combination of painterly gestures and visible structures of the colour mass are remarkable, the colours themselves, their tones. They move in rarely explored areas, do not jump at the viewer, but require sensitive approach and a willingness to see them with patience to see all traces of nuances. Images as they are dynamic in origin and have a form of inventory, that makes a meditative element.“
