For me, the language of painting takes place on several levels: At the basis is a thought, which I transform into a picture composition and determine the colour concept. On the canvas, a basic framework is thus created, which is necessary for the composition of the picture in a format of two by two meters. In this setup, I work with different painting styles. To avoid illustrating the idea, I work without a template and look for my cyphers, which move between the representational and the abstract. This leads to the development of a new pictorial language, which has increasingly detached itself from the original idea.
