about "icons"

Just to enjoy a creative change, I discontinue my main work of large-scale abstract paintings in oil on canvas from time to time. So my "Icons" were born, a series of  fresh and funny small scale paintings. I love them because they are fancy and cool, they are giving me new energy, as if I have a break. This is the reason why I name  them also my "breaks".

The base of my work with the “Icons” are my abstract paintings, which I am practicing passionately since many years. When the first step, the abstract base coat on canvas is finished, I am coming into an amusing play, collecting multi media found objects in print magazines, constructing and deconstructing fragments and forms in additional layers. Different facets and fragments assemble in a new composition, finally repaint with oil colours, acrylic and chalk. The result is surprising, fresh and bizarre.

There is an interplay between the forms and the colors, effecting new relationships and structures. It is a balacing act, a dialogue and each artwork a unique piece.
