Artist’s Statement

Making series of paintings is emphasized in my artistic work. Narrativity is essential for me. The backround of my paintings is often literary. A starting point for my work is the image flood of media. I combine art historical ingredients with contemporary social criticism. I try to create historical continuity against the media glitter.
