my friends and I
How do I fit a story into a single picture? – For example by furnishing it with elements which indicate a future and a past. The viewer wanders through the picture with his glance and connects its components into a chain of events whose order is mutable. He establishes correlation through his associativity. The arrangement of the pictures elements is open to interpretation and does not seek explicit answers. Besides being able to excite general interest, I like my work to be personal. That's why I conceived of motifs which contain one of the values most important to me: friendship. The drawings depict me with twelve of my friends while playing. We act out roles and create our own world around us. The scenes are ficticious but filled with meaningful and/or personal objects. Moreover they are characteristical for the respective people or the relationships between them and myself.
