The devotion of an artist

My experiences

I was born in Zurich in 1957 and studied law at the University of Zurich after my usual school career. For more than 30 years I have been artistically active in various fields. More than 15 years ago I decided to dedicate myself full-time to my artistic career. In addition to running my painting school "Atelier für Kunst und Gestaltung" in Bubikon, I work as a curator, head of courses for cantonal parent education, support school art project weeks, and preparatory courses for further art training, and take Matura exams in the field of visual arts.

Abstract Painting

Abstract art shows colours and forms that are largely abstracted from absolute and familiar imprints. For each viewer of such paintings, different interpretations arise.

Mixed Artworks

I very often use the mixed form of abstract and concrete painting in my pictures. The viewer's eye is inspired by a certain balance of the two types of art. Despite the concrete engraving, the painting needs an individual interpretation. This gives the painting an interesting, mysterious, mystical component.

Cave Pictures

To substantiate the theses I put forward in the art book "Kunst®evolution", I created a large number of so-called modern "cave paintings" in 2018/2019. For this purpose, I have intensively studied the current state of the art of cave art in advance. By incorporating ancient fragments of cave painting into modern acrylic painting, I build a bridge from the Stone Age to the modern age.

Book Art Revolution

In 2019, I published the book "Kunst®evolution" (Art Revolution). It is a source of inspiration for people who are willing to critically question the big changes in the contemporary art scene.
