In my artistic work, I deal with the question of the perception of our reality through the media of video, painting, drawing and photography. How do we humans locate ourselves in our environment, where are we influenced by natural phenomena or are we even at the mercy of them? Every person looks at the world with his or her own background of experience and perceives it differently. Through communication, we negotiate these different perspectives and come closer to each other or set ourselves apart. But how secure can we actually be for ourselves and our perception and our reality, since everything is constantly changing and events out of nowhere can throw everything into confusion?
Originally coming from painting, the cut-out and sometimes detailed, observing view can also be found in my video works, which often deal with natural phenomena such as wind, water and light. I am always on the lookout for images that, for me, stand metaphorically for existential human themes such as the desire for security and safety. The fragility of reality also preoccupies me in my paintings and drawings, which can only ever represent a certain moment and, in contrast to the fleeting video, fix this one moment and thus hold it in time.
How can we make friends with the constant passing of being? How do we balance over the abyss of the ephemeral, while we are all too aware of it? Perhaps by trying to perceive the individual moment in all its poetic fragility and to exchange ideas about it with others.
