painting and printmaking / abstract landscape

About my work:
Landscape as a synonym for the world reflects underlying realities and truths, encrypts them, makes them show through and discloses them only as approximations. The horizon as the central focus of my artistic works separates and connects what is above and what is underneath, what is obvious and what is hidden. It is not my aim to decode what is above or underneath. The secret should be kept – and the beauty which perhaps lies in the encrypted, in the mysterious.

In the spring of 2011 I started to “disturb” my paintings. Just as the accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant happened, my artistic perspective changed. The lines and stripes I put above and below my pictures and interwove with my motives at first made me think of a radioactively contaminated landscapes. The beauty of the landscapes that inspire my paintings - the Berry in France, the Uckermark in eastern Germany, the sea and others – has not suffered. But in my paintings they have since been inscribed with a rhythm and a conflict. Man has integrated himself into my landscapes vertically, as an observer and as an agent.
