Human encounter, portrayed in a multi-faceted way by two persons meeting each other.

Will the encounter be a successful one, will it lead to enrichment? May we, as interested observers and viewers, also take an interest in it? Do we hear the invitation to participate in the conversation? “Painting pictures is an art without words”, the painter informs us.

He prefers focusing on painting pictures rather than popping clichés on us. His themes, heads and figures in unorthodox presentations express his greed and lust for working with paintbrushes and colors. In the many layers for coating the canvas, which are determined by coincidence and intention, the imaged reproduction of nature gradually vanishes in favor of a psychological phenomenon.
