"The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless."  Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Figurative art is an essential part of my art. "Der Mensch," including  animals and plant life; is the most important aspect of my works.

Throughout the years my works have evolved from Neo Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Abstract, Abstract Surrealism, Figurative Surrealism to Pop Art = Post Modern.

I love the freedom of experimenting with objects as coins, old torn wall papers, gold plate, newspapers etc -& my art has evolved to "out of the box" expressions."

Mixed Media allows me to create surreal expressions. I  like working in Juxtaposition -"the act or an instance of placing two or more things side by side," which gives me the freedom to disregard traditions or "realism".

I  combine papers and other items with paint.-, Robert Rauschenberg called this Combine Painting. In the 90's I met him and he influenced my approach to creating my art.. My art has evolved over the last 30 years from  Abstract Expressionism, Neo Expressionism, to Pop Art and Surrealism.

See my "Homage to Andy Warhol.

"Pop art is a way of liking things. "(Andy Warhol)

My  passion for photography opened new doors in new possibilities to express myself -  for instance in my Pop Art works.

Figurative art and the abstraction of the human body is one the subject matters I am known for. Portraits are the "disciplined works," which I enjoy executing as I connect with my subject.

I studied art in Austria at Oskar Kokoshka's School of Art, in Munich, and at the University of Trier in Germany.

Throughout the years I have established and managed 5 art galleries - in Germany and Florida. I taught painting and sculpting with clay, art appreciation and "seeing the art world"  in my art school "Der Malerhof'" in Community college of Augsburg and others and in the Art Academy in Irsee, Germany.

French writer/aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery wrote in his classic book, "The Little Prince," "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
"On ne voit bien qu' avec le coeur. L' essentiel est invisible pour les yeux."
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: 'Le petit prince', 1943. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A9on_Werth

 

I have recently moved my studio and home to Maryland, enjoying Delmarva on the Atlantic. - And the Atlantic is where I started my journey."

My work is shown internationally and my art is being collected in many countries.

"Art is my life"-

Thanks for the applause.
