Nihilism

With growing indifference towards life also the desire increases to make art that just "says nothing". Because there is nothing left to say. Like a flicker on channel 6 – only that channel 6 was switched off years ago.

 

The Nihilism series was born out of the desire to break through classical and established forms of aesthetics. It began with unusual image details to cheat the golden ratio, but then grew more and more into a celebration of the "non-motif", in the end it was only structures, forms, surfaces and digitally alienated objects that I depicted. In the meantime, I would go so far as to say that a classical use of the medium, namely for the depiction of motifs (be it portraits, architecture or landscapes) seems completely nonsensical to me. Also based on the (personal) realization that all these things have already been depicted in various versions. They have become boring.
