Lines and Writing
formal and intellectual centeredness on the self

Still Lifes
central theme since 1999
capturing, systematic expansion and ultimately sole
theme invention of various parallel worlds, including:

Poly Lifes
expansion of still life constellations by merging all previously used models on one level, arranged in direct juxtaposition to and confrontation with each other. The complete still life, so to speak.

The Quiet Cohabitants
additional creation of specific protagonists and abstract constructs (from papier-mâché, wire and paper) with firmly assigned schemes, names and special interrelations. Individual, personal characters.

human models as living pictures or details of still life scenarios, supported by masks and sculptural expansions

Show Worlds
small-scale sculptures and reliefs as wall objects
standing objects and sculptures in Plexiglas globes

De Naturalia
devotion towards the small, natural friends within the infinite cosmos
