The basis of all forms and abstractions of my work is the technical, architectural environment.
Constant excursions to cities, (air)ports and railway stations worldwide, this process leads to new formulations. The impressions are documented by photos, sketches and finds, with the digital camera as a permanent tool.
Out of this base, works of art (also in large format) develop in form of: drawings, objects and in recent years also sculptures and installations.
