ABOUT MYSELF

My basic interests as an visual artist and cultural activist lie in cultural reception, personal involvement and self-development. In my works I often refer to picture sources and reinvent them as model situations of highly involving content and emotional plasticity. My artistic position is represented in public und private collections and regularly featured in solo and group shows at national and international exhibition spaces.
