"The works deal with the diverse aspects of humans, their nature and their relationships and ambivalences with one another. Abstract and representational elements penetrate the pictorial space and create a field of tension with an eye for internal and external experiences.”
"Die Arbeiten befassen sich mit den vielfältigen Aspekten des Menschen, seiner Natur und seinen Beziehungen und Ambivalenzen untereinander. Abstrakte und gegenständliche Elemente durchdringen den Bildraum und schaffen ein Spannungsfeld mit Blick für innere und äußere Erfahrungen."
