Although figuratively and stylistically standing in a surrealistic tradition, my works are the direct opposite of any illustration or visualization of given concepts. On the contrary, concepts develop in every creative process: hermetic concepts that arise from a dialogue of form- and color movements developing individually and immanently during every artistic action. Ideas such as “the feminine”, “the masculine”, “the hermaphrodite”, “the intersex”, "animal" and "human", "object" and "subject" detach themselves from their classification function and become fluctuating principles of artistic composition.


What I want to reach, is all that condensed, entangled ambivalence of existence, which in every word language has to dissolve into terms and lose its opacity. The realm of words is finite.
