Unique artworks of dripped and free flowed enamel paint and charcoal on canvas
My technique of dripped or flowing enamel paint and charcoal on canvas was born through trying, experimentations and at least checking out the limits of different materials, their behavior and their effects on canvas.
The dripped or free flowing enamel paint creates unchangeable areas, some just happened, some are intended that the other areas I fill out by charcoal and soft pastels to create life and depth. For modeling the background I sometimes use acrylics.
My technique allows me to paint in the degree of detailing which I like to have it. In the end the faces appear to be a rough portrait with vitality but without the entitlement of perfection. I am focused on modeling the smooth and glossy surface of enamel paint and the consequential play of dynamics that dominate my paintings.
My art is my freedom to play with different materials and to control them, but at all times the risk of an unforeseeable flow of the enamel paint is included – just exciting.
All of my paintings are based on a thought, an emotion, a mental state, a memory, a lifestyle, a wish to make the unspoken visual. Thereby a motive arises that what will transport my imagination. Often faces, facial expression, gestures and sometimes places.
I never aspire to force the basic idea or statement of an artwork on its viewer. Any painting should be a place for emotions and thoughts of the viewer.
Aesthetics and grace is one of my most important aspects creating my unique artworks beside to emotions and expressions. My paintings should be attractive, stylish, unique and distinctively.
On the first look they are beautiful – on the second look they arouse viewer’s curiosity because of their shadows, depth, edges and the smooth and glossy surface of the enamel paint.
In the end each of my artworks is a successful dynamic ensemble.
My main inspirations are music, music, music and emotions.
