CONFUSING
As a spectator you often look for a recognizable style and technique in the oeuvre of an artist and I do understand that it is very confusing when you cannot find it. But for me, as a sculptor, emotions prevail and I have no ambition whatsoever to deliver year after year and repetitively a recognizable "product" to gain name recognition. I don`t care. In my work I want to be who I really am, honest with myself.

A LIBERATION
I `ve never tried to make sculptures for anyone specific, I just did it for myself. It `s an outlet, a way of thinking and venting my feelings. So you may discover in my work a hidden, emotionally highly charged subject or a critical train of thought with or without humor.

A CHALLENGE
Occasionally I simply concentrate on a three-dimensional interplay of lines. It gives me peace of mind and helps me to leave behind all serious issues and to play with light and shadow without any worry. Looking for aesthetics I enjoy to surprise myself and I try to push my boundaries again and again.
