digital compositions explores the borders between painting and photography. Only a few of the works are "processed photos" in which the original content of the photo is still visible. Most of the works emerge from snippets of photos that are then composed and formed into a new picture. The photo snippets are uncoupled from their original context, and reformed into a new work of art, and are comparable to a single brushstroke in a painting.
By means of reflection, overlay, repetition and reduction new rooms and spaces are created, new structures built. It is important to me, that those rooms and structures leave enough space for imagination. I like the idea that the beholder is adding something to the picture in her or his mind. And our eyes and brains can do this very well.
When I first started working on digital compositions, almost immediately I felt that there was a natural correlation to my painting work. Using photo snippets of paintings or painting on printed canvas: the borders between painting and photography become blurred. This opened up great new spaces to create.

the border the conquest the fear the perception
the impact the effect the imagination the blank
the approach the beginning the claim the loss
the reflection the orientation the abberation the way
