I am a German artist currently living in Frankfurt/M. My work as a painter revolves around human visions, longings and emotions in past and presence in an abstract way. I search for freedom, liveliness and intensity in my paintings taking up human experiences like happiness or despair, longing or anger. I have an intense relation with colour: I love to dive deep into colour thus feeling its sensual effect and its emotional charge. My paintings open a space for associations, memories and new experiences.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The four artworks (oils, acrylic marker and pencils on paper) deal with playfulness, as the title states. Playfulness is a state of mind where everything goes with ease and flows by itself. Children are our teacher. As grown-ups we have unlearned to be playful. But as an artist playfulness is a very important quality for my work. Art happens, it is not something I can 'do'. Of course, knowledge and experience are important - but then for me making art is the process of letting go and emptying the mind. So these four little works have been created in this state of mind!
