I am...
Hoping to be an artist one day , or i die and breathe for Art.Rocken roll style till the end. Natural and Instinctively as it should be.
About my artwork
But the nature and meaning of artistic creation continue to be misunderstood, as does the nature of creative work in general, because feeling, after all, is always and everywhere the one and only source of every creation.
The emotions which are kindled in the human being are stronger than the human being himself... they must at all costs find an outlet they must take on overt form they must be communicated or put to work.
It was nothing other than a yearning for speed ... for flight ... which, seeking an outward shape, brought about the birth of the airplane. For the airplane was not contrived in order to carry business letters from Berlin to Moscow, but rather in obedience to the irresistible drive of this yearning for speed to take on external form.
The "hungry stomach" and the intellect which serves this must always have the last word, of course, when it comes to determining the origin and purpose of existing values ... but that is a subject in itself.
And the state of affairs is exactly the same in art as in creative technology .... In painting (I mean here, naturally, the accepted "artistic" painting) one can discover behind a technically correct portrait of Mr. Miller or an ingenious representation of the flower girl at Potsdamer Platz not a trace of the true essence of art no evidence whatever of feeling. Painting is the dictatorship of a method of representation, the purpose.

I have worked mainly with a focus on painting, sculpture, organization and reconstruction of materials. These, I try to rekontekstualisere and use, and transform with the intention of creating an autonomous.
This process has often originate in different concepts, some of which are defined in advance and other developed out of pure intuition. The intuitive element, such as location of work is often to define the "nerve" in my work.
My work process is driven by elements such as exaggeration, digressions, intensity and also with others. Especially the latter is a strong catalyst for my work and I have very great benefit of collaborative projects. The cooperation has shaped a framework for my career. It is a daring Prosser with common liquid mental transmitted energies that create a greater awareness.
Established artists and art students work as colleagues in a convention with individual positivist views and arbitrary finding a consensus is not always easy. It is often a mess as you try to control and often goes out of his control. My work, each to clean up a mess right from the start.
One project abstract paintings that were painted in 1986-87 by an artist from an earlier generation, but which have been completed in 2009 by myself and another artist. This is linked to a historical perspective, where modernism is taken up again.
Performance was a process I stumbled across but decided to further develop. This is contrary to the object-based. I did an "archaeological" findings in the academy garden. Where a stone placed on a tree planted by the artist Joseph Beuys exist. I lifted this up on a pallet truck, and skate through the castle park and down to a show I had and put it out at the entrance to the gallery on a pallet. Transported the stone from the famous icon back the day after the exhibition and placed it back where it belongs.
The challenge ahead is to work with what I still have been doing, and approaching me such an uncomplicated relationship with the process as possible, without being too excessive and still retains a certain seriousness. Painting, each focusing of different issues, extremes in the periphery have to reach each of research, experimentation with object-based representations versus performance. While the deep core of each natural and instinktvis and the foundation has played on the experiences and different constellations.
Artists I like
