Es bedeutet sogar weniger (Malerei)

My paintings are perhaps best described as “narrative expressionism” or “internalized portraiture”. The juxtaposition of a static figure (often possessing the head of either a fish or a bird) in an active setting hints at the internal, through the depiction of the external. The stories behind these “therianthropic” pieces are deliberately ambiguous. The incongruity yet immediacy of the imagery fuel the viewer’s preconceptions. They invite the witness to create their own narrative and bring to mind facets or emotions that maybe more difficult to confront if not disguised behind a mask. The images presented here are fragments that have arisen since arriving in Berlin.
