Selected artworks 1992–2001, including drawings from the exhibitions
Bird-Song-Boat-Song, 1994, and Phantastische Stilleben and other Drawings, 2008
A gallery of 35 drawings...
sailors and fishermen, youths playing strip poker, smiles stretching
from ear to ear, boats sinking and capsized,
a mysterious universe, eyes of grassland animals, a luncheon on
the grass, Pep and Loplop, a museum of rare paintings…
In the final analysis, a drawing simply is no longer
a drawing, no matter how self-sufficient its execution may be.
It is a symbol, and the more profoundly the imaginary lines of projection meet higher dimensions, the better.
No Poet, no artist of any sort, has his complete meaning alone.
His significance, his appreciation, is the appreciation of his relation to the dead poets and artists.
T. S. Eliot
A man must dream a long time in order to act
with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.
Pure Art is born when the expression of the formal element
and the expression of the formal organism
coincide visibly with the spirit of the content.
