Artist Statement

Being born in Germany I was surrounded by the Woodcut Prints of Albrecht Durer, Kathie Kollwitz, Ernst Barlach, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff and Franz Marc, just to name a few.

As they did, I use special woodcut tools and shun electrical tools to stay true to the tradition.

What differentiates me from the tradition is my style. I seldom carve lines in the wood. Instead I try to set black forms against white forms and to entertain the creative brain further, I break these forms up. For example, I might break up the general form of a plant into white and black segments and then let the brain of the viewer “repair” these segments into one unit.

In contrast to my woodcuts, my Pastels give me spiritual freedom of space. The images reach from cloud/sea/land scapes, to Portraits of people and dogs to still lives. The PSA signature statue shows the quality degree of my work.

My sculptural work integrates all the experience I gained from linear work in wood, soft approach in pastels to 3-D images in Bronze and Clay.
