Compass- The Kaleidoscope
Acrylic on canvas
90 x 90 cm / 35.4 x 35.4 in
Vienna 2017

One simple element repeated multiple times can create more than just a foundation. It can create rhythm, a whole world.
The different directions are always there, it is all about the choices we make and the perception we choose to believe in.
The beauty in life is somewhere between balance and contrast. Each one of us is a precious stone, which needs a lifetime to be polished.

Strings
Acrylic on canvas
160 x 120 cm
Vienna 2016
3D painting. The best way to see it is in original with 3d glasses.

Riding through life we create many strings. One may refer to them as attachments to people, events, habits or even blue prints and patterns. Some help us grow others stop us from moving forward. The changes in life are given, but if they are a conscious act of growth and result of our decisions, or just landing there is a personal choice. Let we all be aware of the strings we create and let only the good ones stay.

The spirit of our contemporary time is speed. We are so often in a hurry. Our minds are busy, ours time is busy, but we cannot rely on the next moment, because if we do not focus on the moment here and now, we might miss a lot of important things. Keeping the moment and enjoying every bit of it, could help us to stay in the perfect flow of events and circumstances. It will give space and open a door for more to come.

 

 

Jared Leto was the inspiration for this painting

Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall

Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall
70x60 cm / 27 x 23 in
Acrylic on canvas / Acryl auf Leinwand
Artist in residence
Mussbach, Germany 2013

When you are stuck in a life situation, don’t forget, it is just a situation, not your life story. If you would like to change the outcome of the events, change your actions and your response to all events. The same actions from the past, might bring you the results, you always had. Here is my new painting: „ Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall“. After a crazy heat, there is always rain or a little storm, to cool down the earth and the mind. The sky gets clear and the air is fresh, a beautiful time for a new beginning. The difficulties in life are like a washing machine, they twist you, squeeze you and bring you back clean and fresh. Sometimes only after time, we can realize, how much a situation has changed us. Behind every closed or open door, there is something new, we could learn and discover. It is our choice and state of mind and conditioning, if we will see it, get it, or miss it.

Das Bild beschreibt zwei symbolische Grundelemente der Liebe: Schmelzen ( sich fallen lassen) und brennen ( ohne zu verbrennen). Erst nachdem wir die große Liebe zu uns selbst erkannt haben und alleine glücklich sind, dann können wir diese Flame mit anderen teilen. Die Flüssigkeit und Bewegung der Eis sind mit dem Zeitpfeil und der Zeitrichtung verbunden.

The Time Arrow / Der Zeitpfeil
160 x 130 cm / 63 x 52.2 in
acrylic on canvas / Acryl auf Leinwand

2010
Vienna/ Austria

English

In Western cultures the time arrow represents a linear concept of time. We remember the past, but not the future, or may be we do sometimes. The psychological time arrow describes our subjective distinction between past and future events. In many old cultures like in Africa the word for tomorrow and yesterday is the same, also kids have a problem to make a difference between today and tomorrow.

The cups are symbol of time, present, past & future.

Deutsch

In der Kultur des Abendlandes steht der Zeitpfeil für eine lineare Zeitvorstellung.
Der psychologische Zeitpfeil beschreibt unsere subjektive Unterscheidung zwischen vergangenen und zukünftigen Ereignissen. Wir können uns an die Vergangenheit erinnern, aber nicht an die Zukunft. Andere alte Kulturen haben ein umgekehrtes Zeitkonzept, bei dem die Zukunft als hinten liegend betrachtet wird. In Afrika das Wort für morgen und gestern ist dasselbe.

Die Tassen dienen als Symbol der Zeit: Gegenwart, Vergangenheit und Zukunft

Vienna/ Austria

Exhibited at the Fantastic Realism Museum Vienna/ Aussgestellt im Phantasten Museum Wien

English

My work is a mixture of places and cultures, play and religion, an architecture of jet lag, that searches for the true path. Very often we are too busy and lost in future plans or past event and don’t realize we are not living NOW.

„Time is Natures way of keeping everything from happening all at once.“

...and I didn’t mean, that everything in this painting is happening at the same time, but more or less all painted actions are connected with each other.

Follow The Nort Wind- The north wind gives a sign to the nomad folks when the time has come to keep on moving and searching for new places.

Deutsch

Meine Arbeit ist Vermischung von Orten und Kulturen, Geschichten, menschliche Transformationen, eine Architektur des Jetlags auf der Suche nach dem richtigen Weg. Viel zu beschäftigt mit zukünftigen Plänen oder vergangenen Erlebnissen ist uns oft nicht bewusst, dass wir fast nie einfach JETZT leben.

"Zeit ist, was verhindert, dass alles auf einmal passiert"
(John A. Wheelers)

...und ich habe nicht unbedingt gemeint, dass alle Handlungen in dem Bild gleichzeitig passieren,sondern, dass alles was passiert mehr oder weniger mit einander verbunden ist.

„Folge dem Nordwind“: Der Nordwind bewegt die Nomaden und zeigt wenn die Zeit gekommen ist weiter zu ziehen.

2010
Vienna/ Austria

English

As a connecting red thread in many of my works, a cup of tea serves as a symbol of time: present, past and future. The idea comes from SadÒ or Chado- the tea ceremony in Japan. Tea ceremony is actually a wrong translation, the correct one is tea way or path. The concept of SadÒ is not just about a tea ceremony or a ritual,it is a life philosophy.
 The taste, intensity, quantity and warmth of the tea are never the same. It is a great example of enjoying and catching the moment. Like haiku poetry, it is only about the present moment.

In Bulgaria people say: There are passengers for every train ( ...for every person there is a perfect match somewhere )

Deutsch

Als roter Faden in vielen von meinen Arbeiten dient eine Tasse Tee als Symbol der Zeit: Gegenwart, Vergangenheit und Zukunft. Diese Idee kam aus SadÒ oder Chado: Die Teezeremonie in Japan. Das Wort Teezeremonie, wird eigentlich falsch übersetzt. Richtig wäre es als Teeweg zu beschreiben. Bei SadÒ gehe es nicht um das Vollziehen einer Zeremonie oder eines Rituals sondern um einen Lebensweg. Eine Tasse Tee wird nie gleich intensiv schmecken, wird weder gleich heiß, noch von der gleichen Menge sein, es ist einmalig, wie alle erlebten Momente.

In Bulgarien sagt man: Es gibt Passagiere für jeden Zug ( Jeder Topf findet seinen Deckel)
