Artist Statement

 

I am exploring our desire for a lost Eden. In our fast changing world the infinite splendor of the natural process of entropy and decay becomes a metaphor for the continuum:  A fallen world, but free to overcome form and purpose. It is just a state of transition, of change, of evolution.

Fail has a dual nature of its own. It is at once a leap forward and a fall downward, one that can only be made by free human beings. The motivation for such a leap is triggered by curiosity and/or anxiety about the future and about being a human itself.

The cycle of nature is endless; a work of art is an expressed glimpse of the eternal.

Wax and powdered dry pigments have been the consistent medium in my paintings.

I use fire and razorblades to attack and challenge my paintings. I leap and fail, but where creativity and failure dance, I approach the truth.

When I succeed I transcend tragedy and see the genesis of beauty and the ephemeral.

Birgit,

Thank you for your thoughtful comments!  I took a look at your portfolio and I am mutually attracted to your beautiful work.  Your handling of the medium is impressive and  I very much like your palette and painterly techniques.  You have a very romantic sensibility!  I look forward to seeing more of your art in the future.
