»Nothing but the sky, a horizon and a place where I stand.
The heavens are open in all directions.«
Karl Jaspers (1883-1969)
The vastness of the North German landscape sets my soul at peace and I can be at one with myself. It gives me a feeling of returning home. I am fascinated by the changing light at different times of the day and year. This is why I have called the series »Northern Lights« which reflects the special conditions of illumination.
Most of the paintings in this series show coastlines of the North Sea or Baltic Sea in Northern Germany. Particularly those who have been there during a gale or in beautiful summer sunshine know how both coastlines and water differ in colour. I like to capture the typical atmosphere and mood of the moment in my paintings.
