It is important for me to mix materials and techniques, to experiment, to research and to create new media and forms of expression, to deepen my way of working and to continue. This in the historical and social context. To examine uncomfortable questions with the help of artistic means and to put the discourse in the real or virtual public. Art as a means of integration, of showing, of participation, of reflection, as a bearer of hope and as an aid to nonverbal communication and understanding, but also as a danger of image manipulation. The context determines expression and interpretation. Music, sound recordings, photographs, film sequences and shadow photographs become media installations.
Artistic companions who accompany the political and social events.
TRANSPARENT WORLDS Transparency, light, air, lightness, a touch of material, non-cognizable, a Glimpse of shapes and colors, but not clearly fascinated the Diffuse. A world is created outside of the real. Each viewer creates his own world with his own perception. The result - different worlds in a Single. The perceptions superimpose itself, a single world together from all the different observations. Each is a part of it all ........
ART | GRAPHIC | INSTALLATION | MULTIMEDIA At the beginning of the conceptual artistic work, thematic photographs are processed on the computer. These come from shared archives or are made digital or analogue by me. From the digital graphics created print templates, which are transmitted by means of a manual printing process on the carrier. The impression of the graphic appears more picturesque than the original, which is enhanced by the transparency of the glass. As a carrier, a variety of types of glass and materials are used. Old window panes, find glass, mosaic stones, silk, tissue paper, tracing paper, etc. Important is the transparency of the material to ensure a shine through.
The image attains a deliberate blur and depth. The overlapping of several glass layers creates a three-dimensionality, as used for example in a pop up book. The overlapping of times and historical events, the non-denying connections of the past, present and future, are closely related in content selection. The emerging shadows as a symbol of becoming alive of the past can open up the most diverse aspects and art forms with the help of the new media.
The glass print pictures are often reminiscent of old photo plates, which were used in the beginnings of film art. From the glass prints and their thrown shadows or photographs are again created video sequences.
So the bond closes between the generations.
