The main part of the presentation are acrylic paintings on canvas. These are predominantly colorful image spaces full of dynamics, some of which resemble the appearance of matter, space and time, i.e. the Big Bang. In abstract compositions dominated mainly by blue, there are also calm transitions. However, it is always important to look closely as the title “Love Letters” was not chosen by chance. In a colorful cosmos, it is important to discover letters and strings of characters as well as fragments of interpretable forms of figures.

According to the artist, images are created intuitively. Therefore, the painter follows his own colors, in which the chain of associations always leads to living painting spaces. The result is a painterly commitment to the eternal movement and diversity of nature with different levels of meaning. The mental connection with surrealism is obvious.

Earthenware vases

Slightly calmer, but no less mysterious, ceramic vases revealed to the visitor using the faience technique, the blue image of which resembles mysterious figures that the artist combines into words, the meaning of which remains mysterious. Another similarly designed vase has its origins in the State Majolica Ceramics Manufacture in Karlsruhe.

The exhibition is complemented by a few small-format, unique bronze works from the “Architecture for Evolution” series. A high-quality 92-page catalog will be published for the exhibition, which is available in the Kulturhof’s foyer for 39 euros.
