Sports and Leisure - Series

Zen - and the art of body control


What has been learned is called up immediately...no time for reflection...the performer becomes the action ... Person and present become one...

Similar to photography, this series captures the immediate moment of sporting activities (especially extreme sports) before it has passed and will never appear in the same form again.

This approach is reinforced by painterly abstraction and dynamic brushwork to emphasize the vibrancy and fleeting nature of the forms.


Emerging from nothingness...a fleeting energetic resurgence...with an almost simultaneous demise...only to return to the eternal mystery of eternity.

Although it cannot be depicted, the attempt is nevertheless made to suggest this eternally silent space through stylistic means of reduction and perception of the present during the painting process, so that the works rest in themselves despite their dynamism.
