The fundamental interests of all works, especially also the visual ones, is a philosophical interest. This interest is all encompassing, a kind of trial to arrive at a more thorough understanding of the nature of our own articulations and things, -the articulation of our species.
Starting from the ground-laying writing + drawings-series, the individual things and images of all kind, the objects, sculptures and everything else one can formulate within the various media. surrounded by the specific glass-constructions, in formation in installations, and mounted to inter-connected exhibitions.
The larger installation segments are the most important elements within this philosophical experiment, to capture the logic in the variations of appearing and reappearing processes and associations. Groups and individual works lead to these larger installation segments, writings, text + drawing series combine in fast forward mode all the eventualities of these complex segments, -and the underlying real complexities of our world. Whether or not this is taken into account in reflecting upon these works; every painting, each picture or sculpture can stand on its own as an object of consideration for the recipient. but there are good reasons to proceed from the mere seeing toward a real thinking..
