Concrete Paintings

The concrete paintings are to be understood as abstract portraits of persons or situations. The comprehensive reflexion about the picture motive is the base to develop compositions of gradual colour and form relations so that the person and the situation appear recognizible. Complicated association networks are converted via synesthetical links into apparently simple pictures.


The paintings are realized in a specially developed multi-layer mixed media technique, using dipersions, acrylics, oils and resins, which lend big depth and translucidity to the colours.


Below some work examples.


With pleasure I also would develop portraits of situations and characters, which you introduce to me. Impulses for this could be beside photographs, from you moreover related situations, objects, materials, texts, sounds, music, tastes and smells, too.
