|Contemporary Art in Rome|
Art is my passion.
It is to me like eating and drinking and like the air I breathe. I have been painting and drawing since I’ve been able to hold a pencil. My mother was a great encourager to me and I am grateful that I had a real artist as an art teacher. During my art studies I had the opportunity to try out many techniques and was able to acquire a rich repertoire of skills. Painting in particular has had a great impact on me.
Colour is a central expression of my art.
The subject of colour theory, colour psychology and the meaning of colour in Christian teaching sparked a fire in me that could not be quenched and plays a central role in my paintings. They reinforce statements or bring them into a deeper dimension. This increases towards a deep feeling, which I can usually hardly put into words. Furthermore, I have always been completely enthusiastic about nature, creation with all ist shapes and colours and the awareness of how wasteful and versatile nature is. I do not only see nature with my eyes, I smell, taste and feel it very strongly. The themes of my paintings have to do with nature and with a dimension beyond it, with the longing for glory, with worship, with faith and with God. Sometimes I work abstractly or more realistically, but always with colour symbolism. Two years ago I‘ve also discovered a fascination for portrait painting. I am not interested in realistic depictions, but in consciously chosen details and facial expressions combined with consciously chosen colours to appeal to people and to show them the truth of God, to sensitise them for experiences with God. Art touches, changes, inspires, heals, reveals and brings hope. This results in enthusiasm and pure joy.
