Welcome to the Studio 

basic string theory

Since 2012 strings rule my artistic world. There is a deep personal respect for the material concerning its strengths and weaknesses. It is satisfying both my natural need for fast working progress and the option to go into detail up to mental and physical exhaustion. The characteristics of the strings have immediate influence on the physical appearance of the work itself. I try to recognize these boundaries and to be inspired by these restrictions in a limitless space of possibilities. The work is focusing recurrent topics like geometric symmetries, 3D-drawings, perspective and the human visual cognition. I like the unusual combination of scientific theoretical research framed by simple handcraft materials.
