The fusion of emotion and intellect is the driving force behind my work. From my point of view the complemental term for ratio(nality) is emotio(nality) rather than irrationality. Instead of advocating the polarity of reason and irrationality I strive to strike a balance between the logical and psychological aspects of human life. In how far can this equilibrium between heart and mind change the way we life, influence our decisions, our perceptions, or even the word we life in? In a society where emotionality all too often bears the negative connotation of indecisiveness, the so-called ratio tends to dominate our feelings.
My works are mostly mixed media productions, in which I aim to incorporate all aspects of our perception. Within this field, music - as a primary source of emotions - is of enormous significance and goes hand in hand with my visual art. Especially within the framework of my art performances, a variety of media are mixed together in order to address the perception of the viewer in a variety of ways. My goal is to touch their hearts and minds likewise.
For me holding my own hands/fingers has become a powerful method for creating my personal balance between thinking and feeling and to enter a level of consciousness which comes close to my personal perception of life in general. I experience this kind of „holding myself“ very relish, even erotic and the quite sexual attribute of the drawings, that one can get at first glance, express this and relate to the fact, that „to twiddle one ́s thumb“ can be an erotic experience.....
