Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"I wear my pearls where everyone can see them. On me."

This picture shows the neckline of a young lady. She is wearing a dark, off-the-shoulder top and an intricately twisted pearl necklace. You can only make out the lower part of her face and yet you know: she is elegant.

The "Up And Down Goes The Economy" series draws inspiration from the aesthetic fabric of the 1950s. The fashion of the time just like a color palette inspired by it is reflected in the works. In addition, there is an ironic examination of the values of this era: on the one hand, the naive thought of consumption and growth, and on the other hand, the perception of women in society.

Artist Profile

Born: 1989

Hometown: Gießen

Based in: Berlin

Aesthetics and pragmatism are in constant tension with each other. Something that exists for aesthetic reasons is often not given the same respect in society as something that exists for practical or conceptual reasons. It seems that no overlap exists or is even allowed between these fundamentally different ways of thinking.

With my art I want to close this gap and declare beauty a necessity.

Our society is becoming increasingly fast-paced and optimises itself in the direction of economy and functionality. It is easy to forget to take the time to do something good for the soul. I am of the opinion that one does one's inner self a great favour when one deals with something beautiful. Stop, take a breath and look at something that represents such an approach, in order to better master everyday life afterwards.

My sense of beauty draws from past, almost forgotten Art Déco aesthetics. Clearly defined, reduced forms manage to flatter the eyes despite their cool austerity and at the same time trigger desire and longing. Combining Art Déco elegance with modern portraiture I build a bridge between the past and the present.

To achieve this, I create a pictorial cosmos full of opulent characters who move outside the norm. With all their charm and honesty, they thus provide a view from the other side of the usual spectrum. My works serve as a mirror to one's own world of thoughts, opening up a possibility to become sensitive to beauty and to have the courage to take one's own destiny into one's own hands.
