Even as a child I was fascinated by nature. I asked myself: "How does the ant see its environment" and "does it find what it sees beautiful"? I hoped to get the answer to these questions by studying biology. But even after my doctorate in behavioural genetics and evolution, I could not answer my original questions.


Next Step

I began to look at nature more closely, differently. Suddenly I was able to recognise forms and structures that were hidden behind the beauty: trees are vertical, light falls in at an angle. Trees are dark, light is bright. Quite trivial, actually, but it turns out that with practice the reduction to essential forms becomes more and more successful. Every walk outside, every look out of the window opens up new worlds.



Sharing what I experience is the reason for my painting. I want to show what a photograph cannot. After acrylic and oil, I ended up with encaustic. In this technique, the pigments are embedded in wax. The light reaches them from all sides and makes them shine. Wax can also form three-dimensional structures and thus further enhance the vividness.
