To show how I work I have photographed differnt steps while painting “Torwächter” and put them together in a movie.

The first picture shows the priming, which I do blind and in a kind of meditation. Thereby it´s important to me to quit thinking and let my hand be controlled by my subconcious mind or something other. The output is an abstract scrawniness. Then I immerse myself in this abstract picture until my sight chances and allows me to spot different motifs, which then I build up in many layers of transparent glazes. During painting more motifs show up – so I never know from the start what picture comes out … and I have to meet new challenges in painting technique again and again.
