Shaped by the Bauhaus
Caught in straightness. Playing with the shapes of life: circle, square, triangle. Exploring, exploring – what’s possible, what wasn’t there yet.
What can be done without leaving the clear, the concrete. Experimenting with the three forms of creation, colors and materials. Curiosity for new shapes, other combinations. Exploring material – what does it come from, how and where does it influence the work. Always surprising with the endless variety of concrete art.
Form worlds and graphic images
His form images are the antithesis to the usual structures, surfaces and constructs that recur in everyday life. The viewer will discover and experience new forms – forms that he is not consciously encountered, at least not superficially.
The graphic works, such as quadratures and panel paintings, are the result of his research into dealing with simple forms such as squares, circles or triangles. Their reduced use leads to exciting objects.
