Harmony and inner reconciliation are brought into unison with the timbre of musical moments and combined to new compositions in musical paintings.
Colours and their vibrations reproduce musical imaginations which are caught in a snapshot fashion.
The paintings allow you to "see" the timbre of colours.
Painting changes space into time, music time into space
(Hugo von Hofmannsthal)
I paint for 25 years, at first in pastels, later in oil or mixed materials only. Experiments with different methods such as spatula-,wipe-, and scratch techniques enlarged my work with the brush. During an exhibition at the museum in the Castle of Coppenbrügge 1999 followed by a concert, I was inspired to begin the work with soapstone. As a result, several sculptures were produced, to be followed later by collages etc.
Music as one of the aspects of art often inspires me greatly, so for instance, the Violine Sonata of the contemporay composer Fazil Say, that prompted me to paint the 3 paintings you can view on the starting page.
The fusion of the resonance body in an instrument and the human body, the melting together of a musician with his instrument and the music he plays, the composition and creation of melodious and painted strokes of the brush, combine both, colour and sound to an infinite variety of new picture compositions.
The fusion of music, painting, dance, and poetics in art, is a great matter of concern to me.
Aethetics and harmony as compensation in a quick moving and overstimulating time, shall generate peace and calmness in the beholder.
The catching and freezing of a moment of musical sensation and its form of expression in a painting, could lead to a feedback in music and raise the desire to enjoy music and painting at the same time.
