'Just like a photo!' - is the frequent reaction of people who see my pictures for the first time. A terrible judgement - if it were true. Because of course I don't have the nonsensical intention to double photos. But for someone who is not familiar with this type of figurative painting, the closeness to the photo is particularly striking. The main differences are only apparent at second glance. And, as always in the visual arts, the actual qualities can ultimately only be assessed against the original.

❯ Still life with Rhubarb

2020 · 45 x 60 cm · In preparation

I can't explain it to myself, but somehow this knotweed plant fascinates me. As a cool compote or on a cake, rhubarb is really delicious. A lot is edible, everything is paintable.

❯ Red Kohlrabi II

2020 · 69 x 77 cm · In progress

Our garden influences my painting again. There is kohlrabi again. In Vienna it is called turnip. The Swiss say turnip cabbage to him. For me it is an apple that I eat while painting.

2020 · 90 x 40 cm · In progress

At the sight of our front yard, some neighbors think of crazy ecofreaks. But no! Not only bees and bumblebees live on, also painters! Here grows, among other things, the tasty wild vegetables called Bishop's Weed.

The salvelinus is occasionally on our menu. You can't just eat vegetables and herbs. My family doctor therefore calls me fish vegetarian.
