Künstlerisches Statement:

Nowadays, we are trained by digital technology and media to perceive pixelated images in our daily life.
My encaustic paintings are an outcome of challenging myself, to paint as if pixels, circles, which I have achieved in my enlarged photographic images since the 90’s.
I found out that the range of each image extends between cosmic, scientific, playful and „designish“ with a completely different tension than in photography.
The usage of an old painting technic, like encaustics, adds a tension between traditional presentation and contemporary concepts.

Heutzutage sind wir durch digitale Technologie und Medien trainiert, gepixelte Bilder in unserem täglichen Leben wahrzunehmen.
