My studio is my content related focal point.

What I do in one sentence: meeting the challenge of generating and sustaining physical energy in paintings.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: because whatever is considered “proper” would always be less appropriate as far as I am concerned.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: I don’t believe in “ifs”. I rather find ways of doing what I want to do, no matter.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Root-wise: Helen Chadwick, Eva Hesse, Francesca Woodman, Franz Erhard Walther… to only name a few and as for the “here and now” all colleagues and artist friends as much as time and capacity allow.

I am afraid of people who dumb down culture.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: No aftermath ceremonies pls! How to remember someone should be free of instructions.
