Originally from Austria, I started my long creative journey in Sri Lanka in the early nineties. As a self-taught artist I kept on painting and travelling for some years until I found in Mexico my inspiring home.
The visual arts fascinate me, like the possibility of screaming without making a sound, the possibility of liberation and the realization of being on an artistic quest of sorts.
During my symbolic period, I painted with water colors and crayons on paper, followed by a long fascination with oils on canvas. A lot of my personal soul searching themes, dream-like realities and travel impressions were worked through in this period.
The colorDrops series mark the beginning of my abstract works mixing oils, acrylics & tints. This period also includes some socio-political pieces about liberty, multiculturalism and ecocide. Shifting my focus from personal to collective themes opened up questions about the artists role as a moral compass.
The quote “be as little in the way as possible” describes my process in general.
