Still Life with Char · 2021 · 53 x 48 cm

The char is occasionally on our menu. You can't just eat vegetables and herbs. That's why my doctor calls me a fish vegetarian. This still life wants to tell of what remains after the meal.

Kluetzer Winkel Cliffs · 2021 · 74 x 200 cm

If a painter lives on the coast, he should make that a subject. May the Kluetzer Winkel be the beginning of a series of coastal panoramas. I am looking forward to this exciting journey along the Baltic coast of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Portrait Ella · 2021 · 86 x 57 cm

For years I have been looking for a counterpart to my portrait of ❯ Bosse in the Forest New Realism, Manfred W. Juergens. Last year I took part in 'Kunst Offen' exhibition for the first time. And suddenly she was standing in the doorway. Ella. She is nine years old and lives in the neighborhood.

❯ Wrecked Morning

2021, Oil on Canvas on Panel, 90 x 45 cm

Some know it: You drank one over the thirst. The next morning the painful disillusionment. In 2002 I painted a still life on this subject for the first time. Since it is still up to date, I would like to dedicate myself to the topic again.

❯ Still life with Borage

2021, Oil on Canvas on Panel, 53 x 48 cm

Borage comes from the Mediterranean. In the 16th century he also reached the country gardens in Germany via France. The plant is used as a spice and medicinal plant. My friend the plumber brought them to me.

❯ Red Kohlrabi II

2021, Oil on Canvas on Panel, 69 x 77 cm

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.

❯ Still Life with Bishop's Weed

2020, Oil on Canvas on Panel, 90 x 45 cm

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.

❯ Still Life with Rhubarb

2020, Oil on Canvas on Panel, 45 x 60 cm

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.

❯ Portrait Christian Redl

2020, Oil on Canvas on Panel, 185 x 193 cm

In 2004 I saw him for the first time on the stage of the St. Pauli Theater. Christian Redl is an actor and musician. For years I listen to his music while painting, follow his playing on stage and in the film.

❯ Still Life with Onion

2019, Oil on Canvas on Panel, 48 x 53 cm

Without this leek, every kitchen is boring. Bacteria are fear of them. What would a tomato without onion be? In addition, they strengthen our bones and the red onions are good for the heart.
