I have always been fascinated how different people interpret the same art differently, based on their life experiences and knowledge. That`s true even for the artworks, that at first sight leaves no doubt about the things depicted. So the art I create, I create with the aim to provoke associative thinking in the minds of the observers. My art is interwoven with the idea, that reality is a subjective notion which is created by the presence of the observer.

Through often zoomorphic characters that are time and time again confronted by abstract elements the audience is asked whether the beast is in the artwork or is the work simply mirroring the observers inner state. Because there are as many minds as realities, and you never know whose watching! The question is open- does reality exist if we do not observe it, and does the observer change the event that is taking place in the painting?
