In terms of content, my artistic practice moves between autobiographical fragments, tenors of sensitivity and a sociocultural touch.
Pop-cultural elements go hand in hand with existential questions of the modern, challenged Self. This creates an associative interplay between banality and pathos, self-optimizing performance and anxiety, infantile web culture with its cute kittens and Major Depression.
Figures, symbols, advertising items, typos and slogans – each with their distinct messages and network of meanings – emerge simultaneously. Their specific inter-relatedness, however, remains questionable.

My paintings pursue a strong awareness of their own material with its charged and contextual meanings and references. Primarily, I work with acrylic paint on linen and cotton fabrics. I also like to use Window Color and spray paint — materials that are commonly regarded as outdated. Formally speaking, my works combine and overlap both visual and graphic elements. The latter are created by using touch-up pencils and colored pencils, thus alluding to formal aspects of stickers and childish doodles.
I consider my emotional and personal experiences as an archive of self-referential fragments, motifs, figures and sentences, each of which — during the painting process — are ultimately translated into a visual composition.
