Artist’s StatementAcademy of Fine Art Vienna
“The contextual background of painting, in fact the very limitation of the canvas itself, is central to my artistic practice. Rejecting the idea of an per-existing subject, a visual vocabulary emerges from the technical structure of the image carrier itself.
This nation of image production demands observation. Engaging with contemporary approaches to image-making, each cycle of work connects to the anticipation of formal elements of painting. Gradually translated into visual material, the conceptual substance itself, is processed into sculptural compositions.”
