i come

pretty straight from visual art. started painting as teenager, did evening courses, studied at the art academy dresden and did my diploma for sculpture. then i was 2 years masterstudent, studied post graduat in stuttgart, paris and later moved to brooklyn, new york, where i attended a first computer graphics internship at the institut of technology, ny..


when i came back

to germany in 1994, i moved to berlin, right in the middle of the electronic music boom, i started pretty radically to work with computers (only), i knew i have to work the same way like the music i was listening to was made .

i passed another 1 year multimedia design education. since then, none of the fascination of working with software and internet based networks has abated. i never felt any reason to move back to paints and traditional artistic work.



deep inside i'm a painter and i always was. so i see my work best described in the traditional context of painting. the focus is on the development of an image and color composition.



it is like coming home and feeling full of an expression that, out of its own energy, is longing to become materialized. even in that moment when i would start painting, i don’t have any direct image up on my inner screen. that wouldn’t be fun. just like when you are pulled onto the dance floor by good music, you do not exactly know what's next, but there is a certain vibration, a certain essence out of which the form is coming...

i like to compare my work process to dancing or improvising music. it’s like the process of developing a (most nearly) finished composition throughout a performance or play. for me it is the way in which evolving form elements start organizing and - in the best case - combine to form a fascinating image.


these works

shown here, are programmed and recorded as vector files, thus they are unlimited scaleable without a loss of quality. I usually realize 3 prints; one unique print in a smaller size about 80cm (+-) width, one unique print in a medium size about 1 meter (+-) width, and 1 unique print in larger size about 1,80 m (+-) width. since the file format allows unlimited scalability with no decrease in quality and these works are mostly based on very dense and finely generated structures, extra large prints would be ideal.

all works are programmed and realized with processing.
