My Bio

That's not me, but it might be ...

Phobia

Living in Stuttgart, Germany I‘m a photographer „en passant“, painter and not a professional artist. I‘m just in it for fun, but nevertheless it‘s an important part of my life. My main profession is quite a different kind of art: Dealing with tax-law (more on the chaotic side of life).


Photography


See it, take it and then play. The pictures are mostly spontaneous finds during walks in my hometown (accompanied with a dog who let you wait and see) or travelling around. The world is full of wonderful details which are quite often in form and colour pieces of art by themselves. These pieces of cut out reality are often abstracted tiny parts of a bigger structure which open the view to a totally new story of the original thing. That is what I call playing with it.


On the other hand sometimes I‘m simply lucky to get a picture in a scenery with or without people which opens the phantasy to tell their own narration (That simply means: Right time, right place, click).


Paintings


It‘s only a little bit of paint on a white empty surface, that means everything is possible.


In recent years I mostly do study’s of faces ( you may call it portraits). It‘s also about stories or as I will call it: What’s behind the eyes? This sort of painting needs also the look for the details, so in the end it‘s a different technique but mostly the same approach as in my photographs.


But sometimes, when I was too much fixed on details I need big paintings with no thought, only colour and nothing else but colour ...


Favourite Visual Artist
The world is full of them.
Favourite Movies
I‘m nostalgic: Casablanca with Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Blues and jazzy
Favourite Books
Too many, my home is full of them.
Tools of the Trade
iPhone, if nothing else is at hand. Aside this: Richo GR, Pentax SLR cameras, Lightroom, acrylics, brushes and fingers …
Other Interests
Writing Haikus, but I‘m German, so let‘s forget about it.

DD-Day XI

Thank you for this DD and your interest. I am happy that one of my shadow games has been selected. These shadow games give the objects in mind something lively. They come to life through the light falling on them. You can play with the light to see what the shadows can tell you about the object. Sometimes the result is something very fragile, as in this case. In other pictures, this leads to mysterious darknesses, which leave many interpretations open. Here is a small selection of my shadow games ...

Many thanks for this DD and your interest! A little look behind the curtain: Same object - different games …

Hello!


I decided to showcase one of your amazing artworks in my collection of the most inspirational art I come across on DeviantArt.


I'm very grateful that you shared it on here and I'm doing my part to give it more exposure, as it truly deserves it.

I visited your gallery here…. And couldn’t believe what is was seeing

You are incredible!

Each picture is a story, each detail is pure art.

Definitely one of the most creative and beautiful collections of this place.

Woaaaw
