In summer 2001 some of my artworks have been selected by a research institute for arts (FIBK) in Germany. This institute was created at the instigation of the ex-chancellor Willy Schmidt in 1976 and collects and documents modern art in the German speech area. The jury of the art competition awarded eight paintings a prize to "Magna Cum Laude" as an outstanding appreciation.... On request I give you to every work of art a certificate with the confirmation that every piece of work is an original and was made by me individually!
Biography: Coming from an austrian family which is rich in local tradition of the south of Austria/Carinthia, my parents family occupies itself since generations of the art and decoration painting as well as the restoration true to style of historic buildings...My father, grandfather and great-grandfather were already painter and restorers... Born 1958 in Klagenfurt, a city near the border to Italy and Slovenia with a strong music and artistic tradition, I live in Austria and Spain. I've studied art/history of art, philosophy and ethnology in Austria and abroad (Dr. h.c.). During numerous stays abroad (Spain, Greece...) I soon felt the need of an intense employment of (abstract) drawing and painting. The journeys in far countries and the meeting connected with other cultures, have become an important signification for my spiritual and emotional advancement like the painting itself! * About My Artworks * Creating my paintings I obtain impulses and search suggestions the daily patterns to leave. The reality is not created photographically exactly to show, it rather one view level, on which accurate details are smeared and represented dreamy or meditative illusorily. In other pictures details are however accurately represented. Feelings and soul statuses as for example emotional conflicts, primitive impulses or unconscious impulses, are determined ruler and reflect thus their own thoughts and feeling machinery. Tendencies and feelings are represented in a creative arrangement and create new symbols. Forms are resolved by means of different colours, colour levels and graphic items. The canvas represents a spectrum for me, in which lines cross, break and step to each other into relationship, whereby in between-stepping light fascinates. The colours flow partly freely, partly them into an apparently given direction are restrained, even if it may come to meetings on the image plane... Most of my paintings are made with textured surfaces formed by mixing sand and other natural materials with paint...
