Behind the scene

The creation of my works of art evolve in a process that is intertwined with my synesthethic perception. Music consists of frequencies and wavelengths, as do colors. My sound perception is translated from one medium into the other both with kinaesthesia, my emotions and other senses while experiencing my synesthetic perception induced by music. In the "flow" it feels like all senses emerge and fusion to become one sense. For example, high notes as we often find within the music of “Chopin”, sound more yellowish or pastel to me and not dark brown or ocher. For me, frequencies are the common language. Our human body consists of around 70 - 85 percent water, depending on the individual and age. Particles and water vibrate differently at different frequencies. There is a lot more to discover in this field and I am immensely curious about the interplay and connections of it. In order to achieve an optimal custom-made result, I opted for an acrylic surface, which, with its smooth surface, is perceived as a contrast to the structural relief of the creation. The strong colors combinations that I use in the process are created by using color pigments and deliver my intense and optimistic vision of our common future either with a "green spirit on earth" or "adventurous in space". As a synesthete, I paint the music I hear and intellectually link together with my imagination - similar to the way Olivier Messiaen described his synesthetic perception. Synesthesia of sound, color and form: It is the color impression created by sound, or the musical impression generated by shape or color. In short, the perception of sound is transformed into color and shape. You can have an extended look at my artworks and the associated music titles that served as inspiration under the following link here.

As an autodidact and enthusiastic person, my approach is "playful" in discovering and researching new topics. I enjoy the process and the linking of different areas. I create my works of art in the process with music that is closely linked to my synaesthetic perception and serves as an inspiration for color, form and shapes, depending on my sound perception. These initially created drafts serve as master templates for my digital works of art and art prints. I photograph sequences of these images with a digital camera (in cooperation with “Leica”) and then process them digitally. This perspective and approach has opened up a new level for my creativity. In a finished work, many individual works are slumbering until the "final" artwork is balanced in interplay with the music and my synaesthetic overall impression and is completed once it has reached my initial, through music induced inspiration. The aim is an energetically harmonious work, which, starting with the choice of music (frequencies), via color composition (frequencies) to the perfect form and composition, conveys optimistic impressions to the viewer and invites him / her to experience his/her own creative form of consciousness. Those who experience their particular form of consciousness often describe it as follows: "It is like arriving in your secret garden." Through works of art as well as the framework that I am building to foster the creative development with ARTSCIENCE my wish is to invite people to enjoy this mental state as well and have a collaborative experience. Artworks are usually "sans titre“ and will receive their „titles“ in the process through the feedback loop of inspiration and conscious perception of the beholders. It is bewildering for me to „peek-a-boo“ at the response of the conscious perception of the beholders to my „subconscious play“.  The point is, it is about „play“, about being „in the moment“ It is a musical thing and we are supposed to sing, dance or paint while the music is being played. My artworks are a "manifestation of play of my subconscious mind" and are "looking forward to meeting your conscious perception" and creative contribution for it to be baptized within the context of digital as well as physical art exhibition and art fairs.
