New perspectives
In my paintings I create imaginary spaces in which neither perspective nor architectural constructs could exist in this way. I shift viewpoints, distort planes, deform bars or reduce distances. Nevertheless, my paintings are real, my rooms theoretically walkable. My handling of light is especially special: it supports flatness or depth, reflects motifs or illuminates hidden corners. Light creates in my paintings exactly what could not be so in reality.

Fantasy-built spaces
The most striking element in my work is the lack of people in the rooms and spaces. Dimensions and proportions thus remain immeasurable. Although all that I paint could actually be a human construct, the person is missing as a protagonist. It is not the person who creates here, but the imagination. I push the viewer into a surreal world: where does materiality end, where does our imagination begin?
