I like to show an old painting technique combined with a contemporary focus on the landscape and everyday objects, but with a magic point of view. This may reveal that there is something behind the pure reality, the pure appearance.
Coming from the Viennese School ot Fantastic Realism (Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus) I developed in my work the thought that fantasy and poetry can be very real in everyday life.
