Colour Space and Tigers


Visually, nature is a constant interaction of light and shade, a constant interaction of colours. Nature has its own set of rules, but it is not this I am seeking, but the artistic perception of it.

When I stand out in nature letting my eyes roam from the foreground to the trees and vineyards in the middle ground and further out to the horizon with mountains which almost disappear into the airy blue sky, all this is experienced as a universe of colour. This space with its colours recreates dreams and echoes the flight of ideas and feelings

The artist creates something which does not exist, and in my opinion this is the artist’s task.
