I'm interested in some philosophical aspects of comfort. In order to make comfort possible for all, one must beleave, that others are more than just an extrapolation of the own self. In my art I want to approach this belief as part of a 'mysticism of a soul'. In contrast to this emphatic subject view I try to provide a more generalized object view as well. For this I combine my portrait paintings, figure drawings and 3D computer graphics to photomontages. The composition process symbolizes the strive for rationality and science.
2. About the Artist - CV
After school and civilian service I moved to Berlin where I first met my wife from China. I studied mathematics (diploma) and philosophy (minor). For many years I worked as a designer and GUI programmer. Thanks to my wife I’m now working as an artist. We both live in Southern Germany.
