On recent works one canvas hides another. Depths and heights are covered up but seem to be bubbling under and to mold the upper surface. These paintings should be read as mind maps loaded with meaning and emotion. Emotion wins over ratio. What at first seems to be geometrical dissolves into an abstract lyricism. The painting becomes a sculpture.
Each painting is a link in a chain, is a different point of view to look at the theme. They all get their own name in the form of a sentence. Most of these sentences suggest a longing for communication, for understanding. They become a gate, a key with which the beholder can enter this abstract world. So the work of art not only becomes a metaphor for the meeting between surface and structure, between light and shadow, tranquility and unrest, but it finds its ultimate mirror in the intimate communication between artist and beholder. A closed circle of human understanding and empathy is created.
