Abstract on Wood (Selection of Artworks)

 

To get something out of the unseen, to look behind the things, to make the unseen visible – with fire – that’s what runs like a golden thread through my creative work. The first inspiration and idea came from the bushfires of Australia – the destroing strength of the fire origins at the same time new life, because many seeds need these fires. Also the trees have adapted themselves to these evolutionary conditions – the fire can get into the tree several centimetres without critically injuring his core. Even more – out of the fertile, ash-covered layer new green sprouts out to the surface. This process I transpose consciously by working with wood – after a relief-like forming (like the weather or other outside influences do it with the bark) this forming is made irrecognizable by using the flames again – like the process which happens during a bush fire.

Burningpictures – Feuer als mein künstlerisches Medium!

 

Ich mache unsichtbares sichtbar durch die Kraft des Feuers. 

Acryl, Öl, Aquarell, sind wohl die häufigsten und bekanntesten künstlerischen Medien! Feuer als Energie einzusetzen ist ein aufbauender, künstlerisch-kreativer Akt. Und genau das reizt mich als Künstler immer wieder von neuem - der Kreativität des Feuers hingeben und daraus meine Burningpictures entstehen zu lassen.

Burningpictures - Fire as my artistic medium!

 

I make invisible visible through the power of fire.

Acrylic, oil, watercolor, are probably the most common and well-known artistic media! Using fire as energy is an uplifting, artistic-creative act. Exactly that tempes  me as an artist over and over again - to abandon myself to the creativity of fire and in this way to create my burningpictures.
