What is ART?
A question which arises in lots of people, who are visiting a museum of modern art in order to find a beautifully stretched canvas with a single red dot on it. Is this a work of art or is someone just playing with your mind in order to confuse you? Like everything else in life it depends from which angle you see it. Let me give you a different example: You might see a stunning building in front of you but after walking in a circle around it you realize that it is only a facade. So, I can't give you the answer for the red dot (only you can do it) but I can present you my vision of art.
So what is art to me? Art to me is the understanding of myself in connection to the world around me. Expressing thoughts through the use of a huge range of materials I feel that art is giving me the freedom lots of people are seeking for but haven't found yet. Eternalizing a wave of energy, which is flowing straight from the body onto the canvas, art in one way frees me from feelings and thoughts, which need to be released. But on the other hand, it describes parts of me, which I feel need to be shared with the observer. Art to me is lots of stories written with use of colours, brushes, pencil or simply a pen.
On my website you find these stories, expressed on a canvas, paper or simply put in words in order to create a poem, which describes the moment it has been written in perfectly well. Herewith I do invite you to forget about the troubles, which seem to haunt your brain and go through my pages to see what maybe I see or to see what you would like to see. Have a look at my paintings and drawings and create an imaginary vision, which entirely belongs to you. Read my poetry and thoughts and create a world on your own, which hopefully will put a smile on your face. Enjoy!!!
