statement

My work starts at my work. I paint something. Often I don‘t like it. So I paint it over. Even if I don‘t feel creative at all, I paint. At the end, it looks all too creative. It‘s too much art, but has nothing at all to do with art.
To set bounds to this arbitrary creativity and to reduce my own influence, different methods are applied: I would copy other artist's work, paint from other peoples photos, have other artists or non- artists copy my paintings, ask an assistant to paint at instructions or ask him for instructions. I paint blind, in the rain or I would paint on disorderly arranged stripes of paper to attain patterns which I wouldn‘t have come up with myself.
