“Kitty at Home”. Acrylic on Canvas 60×80 cm, 2015. I had painted a similar Painting in 2010 during my time in Australia. It caught the eye of one lady and she was so in love with this painting that she managed to talk me into selling it to her for a very low price. One must understand that teachers already have a hard time and are not paid nearly enough. So I hope the painting has a good home, as this one will have one day. This Painting will sell for 4000 Euros.

“Misty Dawn”, my first work of art after returning to my homeland of Germany. It took me a while to find my style back again, so this was rather an experiment really. Acrylic on Canvas, 60x40cm. 2014. It is yours for 2500 Euros.

“Under the Mosquito Net”. 60x80cm, Acrylic on Canvas. 2016. The story behind this painting is pretty intense. Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance but bloody dangerous. I managed to get infected by a rather nasty strain of Malaria. And to be frank, it was woeful. I managed to get myself admitted to a local hospital and stayed there for 12 days. Not a pleasant trip. The Hospital wanted to bill me 1200 Dollars, so my insurance took care of this. For 4000 Euros it can ornate your wall. 

“Little Gypsy”, Acrylic on Canvas, 60×80 cm, “2017. Okay, now in my times, there was a a square in town, a town center, often a pasture or just any open space where festivals would take place a couple of times a year, and at other times the Gypsies would show up.  Every Contact with them was colorful. Hence I give you ” Little Gypsie”. With all my love! And for 4000 Euros. 

“White Wedding” Acrylic on Canvas, 60 X 80 cm, 2017. White was the dominating color at my wedding, my wife, beautiful as ever wore a beautiful white dress and it was a great party.

My paintings depict interaction. My writings describe them. 

 

I have this penchant for observing and describing interactions of all sorts. Be it between Humans or Atoms and Molecules. The energy which surrounds this exchange is what I depict in my paintings.

I have worked as a chemist for a few decades and have experienced interactions on a molecular level and of course, as a human, I interact with people on a daily level. Maybe that is one of the reasons I paint in “Strings”. They resemble my vision of energy the most.

Another, very profound reason I paint the way I do is that in my many years living among the indigenous people of Australia, I learned their techniques and gained a deep inside of their way of perceiving this world. Which is surprisingly different from our view, our consciousness.

I feel we have lost something; we have mostly lost the ability to see the energy surrounding things. I want to help people regain this capability, so we can discern again what is important and what can be discarded as capricious or frivolous. 

In my paintings, I thrive to depict different stages of embrace and different forms of connecting, so I distinguish my paintings, some are more intimate while others appear to be more secluded.

Some of my paintings can be interpreted as fairly erotic as some of the embraces take on semi-human shapes.

In other paintings (i.e.) Event Horizon, I explore the contrast of black and white in combination with colors that remain the same, thus creating an experience in which the colors contrast with changing backgrounds. So, the “strings” interact not only with themselves but also with two backgrounds that are collaborating in a stark form. 

I mostly paint on framed canvas which I prepare in a lengthy process so it is relatively even. This is because then my painting looks almost like it was printed, adding to the mystique a bit. This process involves gluing a layer of smooth textile onto the canvas, which is very coarse by nature, following many steps of painting, sanding, painting again, wet sanding, and depending on the result, more painting. But once the background has been prepared, I start painting away! 

My books are about people meeting other people and/or being confronted with surreal or surprising situations, often set in tropical locations, as I lived near the equator for many years. Some of my stories bear autobiographic marks, of course, others are a reflection on my times in such places as Bangkok and Mumbai, (Bombay at the time). Mumbai at first was a shock to me, even though I had previously visited other developing countries. But the people, the heat, the low morale, and the endemic corruption in combination with the caste system, which for an outsider appears to be outright horrible and wrong on all levels, inspired me to write about it, if only from my German bourgeois perspective. 

 

I hope this insight gives you an idea of my motivations and techniques. Thank you for your time! 

 

Meine Bilder stellen Interaktionen dar. Meine Texte beschreiben sie.

Ich habe eine Vorliebe für das Beobachten und Beschreiben von Interaktionen aller Art. Sei es zwischen Menschen, oder Atomen und Molekülen. Die Energie, die diesen Austausch umgibt, ist das, was ich in meinen Bildern darstelle.

Ich habe einige Jahrzehnte als Chemiker gearbeitet und habe Interaktionen auf molekularer Ebene erlebt, und als Mensch habe ich natürlich täglich mit Menschen zu tun. Vielleicht ist das einer der Gründe, warum ich in “Strings” male. Sie ähneln meiner Vorstellung von Energie am meisten.

Ein weiterer, sehr tiefer Grund, warum ich so male, wie ich es tue, ist, dass ich in den vielen Jahren, in denen ich unter den Eingeborenen Australiens gelebt habe, ihre Techniken erlernt und ein tiefes Verständnis für ihre Art, die Welt wahrzunehmen, gewonnen habe. Diese unterscheidet sich erstaunlich von unserer Sichtweise, unserem Bewusstsein.

Ich habe das Gefühl, dass wir etwas verloren haben; dass wir die Fähigkeit verloren haben, die Energie zu sehen, die die Dinge umgibt. Ich möchte den Menschen helfen, diese Fähigkeit wiederzuerlangen, damit wir wieder erkennen können, was wichtig ist und was als launisch oder frivol verworfen werden kann.

In meinen Gemälden versuche ich, verschiedene Stadien der Umarmung und verschiedene Formen der Verbindung darzustellen, daher unterscheide ich meine Bilder, einige sind intimer, während andere eher zurückgezogen wirken.

Einige meiner Bilder können als ziemlich erotisch interpretiert werden, da einige der Umarmungen halbmenschliche Formen annehmen.

In anderen Gemälden (z. B. Event Horizon) erforsche ich den Kontrast von Schwarz und Weiß in Kombination mit Farben, die gleichbleiben, und schaffe so eine Erfahrung, in der die Farben mit wechselnden Hintergründen kontrastieren. So interagieren die “Strings” nicht nur mit sich selbst, sondern auch mit zwei Hintergründen, die wiederum in einer starken Form zusammenarbeiten.

Ich male meist auf gerahmte Leinwände, die ich in einem langwierigen Prozess vorbereite, damit sie relativ gleichmäßig sind. Der Grund dafür ist, dass mein Bild dann fast so aussieht, als wäre es gedruckt worden, was die Mystik noch ein wenig verstärkt. Bei diesem Prozess wird eine Schicht aus glattem Textil auf die Leinwand geklebt, die von Natur aus sehr grob ist, und dann folgen viele Schritte des Malens, Schleifens, erneuten Malens, Nassschleifens und, je nach Ergebnis, noch mehr Malens. Aber sobald der Hintergrund vorbereitet ist, fange ich an zu malen!

In meinen Büchern geht es um Menschen, die anderen Menschen begegnen und/oder mit surrealen oder überraschenden Situationen konfrontiert werden, oft an tropischen Orten, da ich viele Jahre in der Nähe des Äquators gelebt habe. Einige meiner Geschichten tragen natürlich autobiografische Züge, andere sind eine Reflexion über meine Zeit an Orten wie Bangkok und Mumbai (damals noch Bombay). Mumbai war zunächst ein Schock für mich, auch wenn ich zuvor andere Entwicklungsländer besucht hatte. Aber die Menschen, die Hitze, die niedrige Moral und die endemische Korruption in Kombination mit dem Kastensystem, das für einen Außenstehenden auf allen Ebenen schlichtweg schrecklich und falsch erscheint, inspirierten mich dazu, darüber zu schreiben, wenn auch nur aus meiner deutschen, bürgerlichen Perspektive.

Ich hoffe, dieser Einblick gibt Ihnen eine Vorstellung von meinen Beweggründen und Techniken. Danke für Ihre Zeit!
