Original Paintings of Creation, the relationship of Man to Cosmos
The themes of my paintings range from the mysteries of the universe to the beauty of nature and human consciousness. I explore - practically, with brush and paint - the relationship between humanity and the natural world, and the interconnectedness of all things. These paintings are a reminder of the miracle and magic of creation and - also my - responsibility for its protection and care.
For many years I have been painting the invisible; premonitions, intuitions, fantasies, searches, revelations, leading to new paintings - which often chose their own paths, directing me to follow them. The cosmos and the entire universe are the background for every creature, which is why stars and galaxies are so closely present in my paintings.
When I paint, the painting is one, just like existence. So sometimes I was lucky to disappear into painting as an individual; I was carried away by the powerful energies that make up stars and flowers, galaxies and people, and which, through me, painted pictures that I felt as a real chance of nature, already emerging from the depths of possibilities.
Self-excitation, fullness round; no boundaries between the conscious and the subconscious because they've all been swept away by the wind of psychedelic trips. What else? my workshop was on a strict diet; constant hunger for canvases, paints and brushes.
Creation is the ultimate act of self-expression, whether it takes the form of art, music, writing, or any other creative pursuit. In this page, I present a selection of paintings that showcase the beauty and diversity of my creation. From abstract paintings to intricate paint-objects, these paintings remind of the power of imagination and the joy of creation. I encourage you to embrace your own creativity and to explore the ways in which you can express yourself and make a difference in the world.

Human is the Face of Creation
The painting titled "Creation" is a work of art that captures the essence of human existence and our oneness with the divine. The main theme of the Painting is the idea that human is the embodiment of creation and that we are related to the Light that creates and permeates the universe.
Particularly effective is the use of light in the Painting, thanks to the use of a technique that allows the color to change depending on the lighting conditions. I achieved this effect by applying hundreds of translucent layers of paint and contrasting them with rough textures, giving the Painting a depth and complexity that can take your breath away. This adds a layer of sensory experience to the Painting, making it more than just a visual work of art.
One of the most striking aspects of the artwork is the lack of black, which is a conscious choice. Instead, the deepest blue, also obtained by layering translucent paints, is used. This creates an impression of depth of outer space that encourages you to explore the Painting and discover its secrets.
"Creation" is a work of modern art that celebrates the beauty and complexity of the universe. It's not only visually stunning, but also thought-provoking. I spent two years thoroughly creating this masterpiece.
Interplay of Light and Matter, Subjected to the Gravity of the Experiencing Mind and Heart
The basic theme of my monotypes and Print-Paintings was the beginnings of life and its fantastic spaces. Now the brush goes further towards the source of creation - drawing disappears, the space appear. Cosmic dimension.
The internal theme of my work revolves around the creation of matter from intersecting and crystallizing beams of light, with an emphasis on its organization in landscape densities containing inner space-time. In intuitive research, I try to capture the interplay of light and matter, subjected to the gravity of the experiencing mind and heart. The end result is a vivid and textured image that explores the limits of human perception and the basic nature of existence itself.
The process of creating these images is a deeply immersive experience. Sometimes a painting can be created in one session, more often it needs a million brush strokes, in rhythm three times faster than heartbeat. Tap-tap-tap, each brushstroke overlapping the previous one in a rhythmic pattern.
The tapping of the brush against the canvas becomes a meditation, a way to lose myself in the process and connect with the currents of creativity. However, regardless of how the painting is created, it is always an adventure, a journey of discovery that takes me to new places and helps me to explore the depths of my own work.
Visions unfold from the Brush, that is both Personal and Universal
The contrastful use of thick textured oil paints and multi-layered transparent glazes is a hallmark of my artistic style during this period. I believe that light creates and permeates everything that exists, I try to capture the essence of this light and show its creative beauty.
My works are landscapes of becoming, capturing the essence of the ever-changing world. When I work, visions unfold from the brush, creating a tapestry of color and form that is both personal and universal. My artistic process is rooted in my research on cosmology. Each image is an opportunity to delve into the mysteries of our universe, from tiny subatomic particles to the vast expanse of space.
Each image on this webpage is a poetic research project, a journey of discovery that reveals new insights and new truths. Through my work, I connect with the fundamental forces that shape our world and create a visual language that communicates these mysteries to others, creating a bridge between the inside and the outside. I invite you to join me on a journey of discovery and transformation.
Tunnel of Love, 1976-8
original oil painting 200 x 160 cm
Art Canvas Print 150 x 120 cm and 125 x 100 cm
Meaning of the Motif "sun in the sun"
The central theme of my art is Love; she inspires my brushes and lets them create visions. In my first painting "December Dream, 1975" I painted "sun in the sun", a motif that will appear in my works for many years. It wasn't until ten years later that I understood the meaning of the motif. This was the first step of a journey that led me to understand existence and its many aspects.
Later I painted "Come into the Light, 1976", and "Tunnel of Love, 1976-8" - bigger and bigger sizes, variants of the "sun in the sun" motif. While working on a painting, I was meditating in those rare hours when I wasn't actively painting. The "Tunnel of Love" has a special meaning for meditators as it creates a unique space for introspection and reflection.
After finishing the painting - which took two years - I sat down to rest, captivated by the serene beauty of the little star in the middle of painting. As I meditated on the star, the image began to fade and a vision slowly appeared. Pulsating waves of color danced in the black, a beautiful and exhilarating experience, total surprise!
Over the years, at my exhibitions or in my atelier, many people meditated on my paintings, and some even cried in the presence of the "Tunnel of Love". It is a testimony to the power of love and the transforming energy of art.
Despite the powerful impact of some of my paintings, I do not consider myself clairvoyant. I jokingly say that my brushes themselves are responsible for the visions they create. My role is simply to follow their example and do what is needed to paint over the white canvas!
As I continued to create artwork on consciousness, I began to understand the deeper meaning of the motif "sun in the sun". This powerful symbol represents the First Awakening of Consciousness, a moment of clarity and understanding that changed my life.
The light makes visible what exists. The painting reveals what does not exist.
This is a sentence that captures the essence of my art and the power of creativity. The light has the ability to bring into focus what is already present in the world, while painting has the unique ability to create something entirely new, something that doesn't exist in the physical world.
Through painting, I can explore new ideas, emotions and perspectives, and create a visual language that speaks to the viewer on a deep level. The act of painting is a transformative process that allows me to channel my thoughts and feelings into something tangible and meaningful.
In this sense, the act of painting can be seen as a form of meditation, a way of exploring the inner landscape of the self and bringing it to the surface in a visual form. And just as light can illuminate what is in darkness, the act of painting can reveal what is within the psyche.
So, in a way, the act of painting is like alchemy, transforming raw materials into something new and magical. It is a way of bringing the invisible into the visible, and creating a bridge between the inner and outer.
I painted that oil painting above, where Girl is stuck between the eyes of the Demon.
30 years later, feeling compassionate, I let her dance for a while.
Painting is a way of life
In this period, for me, the internal situation is a source of fulfillment. That is to say: I found my vocation, my freedom - which is stretchable now: in one year reaches the dimension of a light year. Through my art, I have found a sense of purpose and belonging that gives me joy and satisfaction.
From the moment I picked up a paintbrush, I knew that I had found my true calling, and I have been pursuing it ever since. Painting is more than just a hobby or a pastime; it is a way of life. With each stroke of my brush, I am able to express emotions and feelings, to explore the beauty and complexity of the world around me, and to connect with a higher power that transcends everyday reality.
As I continue to develop my skills as an artist, I find that my sense of fulfillment only grows stronger. I am constantly discovering new techniques and approaches to painting, and each one brings me closer to my ultimate goal: to create works of art that capture the essence of creation, the human experience, and communicate it to others.
And yet, even as I pursue this goal, I am aware that my sense of fulfillment is not finite or limited. And in this way, my art is a reflection of the infinite nature of the spirit, and a testament to the boundless potential of the human soul.
One with the Paint, the Canvas, and the Universe itself
On the verge of existence, I felt a deep connection with the creative forces of nature. It was as if I was no longer a separate being, but rather a part of a vast universe, with every stroke of my brush imbued with the energy of the cosmos.
In those moments, I just felt like a conduit for the creative energies that flow through all things; experience that went beyond mere technique or skill; I was one with the paint, the canvas, and the universe itself.
I have named this approach to painting Art Yoga, a term that reflects the spiritual and meditative qualities of my practice. By embracing the present and succumbing to the creative flow, I discovered a level of artistic expression that transcended time-honored boundaries and allowed me to create something truly extraordinary.
Shots on the Border, 1987
original oil and fire painting on canvas 100 x 80 cm
All those years I had a GDR watchtower facing my windows,
these were the first ones in the West(Berlin).
Five bullets hit the canvas
but painting and painter live forever!
Indian Summer, 1988, original oil painting 150 x 120 cm
Art Canvas Print 150 x 120 cm cm
I like these streaks of chaotic colors referring to the vision of landscapes, one above the other, separated by sky or water.
What you see here is chaos turning into harmony. Warm spaces of harmony given to brutal creation.
Rough Spiral, 1988
original oil painting 70 x 50 cm; Art Canvas Print 70 x 50 cm
This is a short way of creation: it starts with the light creating matter, movement and space - by a spiral;
one arm of spiral turns into what can be a shape of a palacy.
I hope that through my Paintings others can experience a similar sense of connection and wonder as they contemplate the immense and mysterious beauty of the cosmos. Whether it's the intricate details of a galaxy far, far away or the majesty of a starry night sky, my Paintings of Creation are testament to the amazing power of art to inspire, move and transform.
Intensive years of creative work - parallel to paintings above I created these years the ‘Landscapes of Creation‘ oil/canvas.
