Linocut and oil on paper
Signed on Verso
Often but not always my paintings start with an aesthetic fascination for some sculptures, sketches or paintings of the renaissance or baroque times. In the series of entanglamentos, for example, I began on the canvas with sketches of paintings by Rubens, Caravaggio, and Tizian, which are connected by topic, composition, and color. And then the playing with composition starts which, in these paintings, led to a kind of reduction or dramatization of some basic elements in the originals. It is accompanied by the playing with color, building up the body of paint layer by layer until a certain intensity is reached. And then there is the playing with the figures and their relation to each other. Here too, a certain equilibrium of complexity and simplicity should be reached which brings the cognitive and emotional aspects to oscillate in strange and interesting ways.
