about my visual poetry/text art: 

it all began when my typewriter got stuck. that was when i discovered vertical writing. the – to me – unfamiliar direction of writing made me understand language as a material in a new way. since then i am experimenting with the wide range of text-based art. in some cases this kind of art is obviously visual poetry.

i work associative. in connection with language as material different kinds of paper and of writing media are of deep interest to me. the investigation of the interrelation of meaning and media is an important concern, the question how to convey meaning by media.

combines of abstract painting and text are also a fascinating subject to me and therefore a field of experimentation. the process is again often associative. i examine how image and text interwine, complement each other, create contradictons. the combines generate their own dynamic.

i am furthermore interested in the genre of picture-poems and the classical manner of setting them to the paintings side.
