Abstract biotope, abstractivity of life
Abstract Biotope (own work, 40 x 60 cm * acrylic and mixed media * 2011)
The vagaries of nature are vastly understated in art. Even the postmodernists, who should be in a position to explore new paradigms vis-à-vis nature, are caught up in their own self/art-centered quabbles and quibbles.
Therefore I have set myself the task to paint the unspeakable abstractivity of life forms, and life itself. The (Semi)Abstract Dunescape series and the Mondrianification series are also to be seen in this light.
