BODY MEMORY. ABSTRACTION. OVERPAINTING“The abstraction and color is the best way to approachthe intangible and incomprehensible in me.The works arise out of my internal body memory.I approach the subconscious with color, material and form.The pictures arise out of the movement of my body and the placewhere the pictures are created – always as a product of great inner concentration.My art follows my inner freedom, arises from an inner architecture of being.
