About my artwork
Philosophy of my mirror sculptures
Through my work I want to break out of the rigid social order, create tensions and to bring about a vivid confrontation with the issues of "form, light and colors". My fascination has always been the play of light in the crystals, in the water, and especially the light fraction of sunlight through the prism.
From dead to life! Pure matter to bring to life through specific perceptual effects. For me as an artist, a great challenge. I want to raise not only my work in the center. The surroundings and environment of my beholders should become a part in my artwork. All these details have to give a contribution to the totality of the artwork. How can you represent that?
With three-dimensional sculptures, covered with mirror pieces, which reflect a confrontation with the sculpture and surroundings. Each individual mirror fragment I cut by hand with a diamond cutter.
The perceived image of my sculptures changes every time when I move to a new location or when I change my perspective. Even my clothes are scattered reflected back. My sculptures convey the mystery of a never-ending visual experience
