SPHERES & VORTICES
Circles are the perfection of form – spheres their equivalent in the 3-dimensional world of objects. In Psychology these two shapes are often referred to as the Symbols of the Soul.
Vortices represent the twist and turns, heights and depths, quiet and stormy moments of life – they are the maps of my life, the atlas of my soul. Phases of life and perception are governed by a general mood – similar to how the first fundamental coat of paint on the canvases of my vortices series influences your first impression of these paintings. What was important now, just soon loses its importance. Uncountable moments, events, encounters, joy and despair as well as those fragmental influences coming from us, others, undefinable sides and sources – add up and impact our emotions and memory.
Eventually I began to understand that the vortices affecting our lives are the grinding and polishing in fluence that offers our soul a chance to mature to peace and perfection. I reflected on this notion - in countless sessions of applying layers of different materials and paint to my canvasses.
