Artist's statement

29. January 2012, Text by Felix Lippmann

Recently I have been increasingly taking an interest in drawing from what is closest to me. Thus my pieces of art develop in the context of the familiar environment in which I sojourn on a daily basis. It is, quasi, this carving-out from very simple matters which lays the ground for curiously discovering small realms of space, structure and colour. Translating this approach into painting and drawing has its own laws, which find expression in the image in the weighting of colour nuances or of abundance and void, for example. Following these laws I try to arrive at painting and drawing that include my personal measurement. This may be a void or abundance the way I perceive them or, as I have already heard being said about my painting, a civilised colourfulness.
