Mathematical structures are connected with nature, art, music and poetry. Visual art is the most natural way for me to show that. I am interested in constructing objects. Writing is a way to organize my thoughts and to articulate my philosophy. Music has broadened my perception of space, time and structures. I have discovered that everything is based on personal observation. The impressionist idea is the only way for me to understand life and death; everything is a transition from one moment to another. ‘Der Zeitraum’ where intellectual perception and emotional experience come together. Only art can make that tangible. Through art, poems and music I try to express the existence of human thinking and being and the beauty of nature and life.

For me, an egg is a universal shape and symbol for the origin of life and beauty. My egg reliefs are spatial collages of egg shells, arranged in a mathematical structure. White on white. Light creates shadow effect, which makes the image graphic and dynamic. If the degree and direction of the incidence of light changes, the image also changes.
