The Spirit determines the rhythm of everything!
I not only perceive the shapes and the color material as such but also as energetic vibrations. I am aware that the main bearers are much more than just background and light and that people receive, process, and interpret the reflections individually. Therefore, the outer principle of perception is only one way, but energetic and spiritual is another way that can be recognized by feeling. I am sure and believe that I can touch a multitude of people with my kind of artistic work and the desire to “make people happy”. On my way of continuous development from a worker, designer, artist to printer, conscious intellectual work is inevitable. Therefore I see myself in the form of the creator and abstract expressionist, as the bearer and messenger of universal news. Creating and painting is also universal food for the brain, where no right or wrong rules and no limits. Creating and painting are processes that open inner thoughts and stimulate the senses, clarify, reorganize, and fine-tune to recognize and broaden the horizon. “This is not a religious, but a spiritual knowledge that comes from inner necessity.” Finally, I wish to thank all those who have helped me. I will always remember the support you have given me. You know who you are!
