Gravity is the result of Stable Diffusion experiments. It’s part of a series of b/w portraits. I wanted to test how telling and emotional the AI-generated images can be. The selected output was upscaled and edited (light & contrast, colors, grain / perlin noise, etc.). But all in all I would call this a 80% machine-production. The 20% (besides the work with prompts and parameters) are curation and editing from my end.

Single parts of the collage are generated using Stable Diffusion. The AI related experiments were connected to the exploration of imaginary water animals (phantasy jellyfishes aso.) and a print-like illustration style. Then the collage-work started as a matter of exploration process - a dark and glitched composition emerged over time.

This is another deconstructive work which is the outcome of different working steps. Original assets have been created with AI-tooling. The rest was a process of digital editing and painting on various layers. Similar to the work ‘Scheinriese’ the context is connected to consumerism, fashion and visual trends in the cyberpunk era. Formally the piece is about abstract pixel landscapes and the dissolving of figurative shape.

‘Scheinriese’ is adapted from the children’s novel Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver (German: Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer) by Michael Ende. The (pseudo) giant Mr. Tur Tur is called ‘Scheinriese’.

The motivation behind this work was to create a super-saturated, over-the-top glitch-work showing some sort of fancy-futuristic neon fashion-deconstruction.

If you look closely, you may recognize the shapes of a catwalk. The work was called named ‘Scheinriese’, because sometimes things appear very bold and shiny, but when you take a closer look, they become smaller and smaller. The piece is not an intended comment on todays consumerism, but it would be wrong to say that it has nothing to do with it.

This is a digital oldie, the basis is a photography of a nice Orchidee. It’s a work from the 00’s. At that time I combined photography, painting and photo-editing / collage techniques.

My painting origins are figurative. I always painted parts of the body or figurative scenes in a non-narrative, but associative way. Figurative elements are treated as shapes, outlines or colors forming a abstract composition. In the past I used to over-paint all paintings again and again - to follow the process in 3 dimensions. Usually, it was not the ambition to paint an image of a certain idea - painting is an process to me.

Because many paintings consist of different layers (documenting this process), I compare those works with palimpsests. Typically a work is not standing still or completed. It is a snapshot of a permanent process of re-contextualization and change. The pieces I do not continue anymore can be reflected as increments of a process-history. That’s especially true for my oil paintings, where one layer continued the ‘story’ of the layers below.

This is an old scribble from the 00’s. The raw image was a pencil drawing I digitized and edited. If I remember right, I was impressed by the visual experience of the film Sin City (from 2005), which is based on the neo-noir comis by Frank Miller. I wanted to play a bit with high contrast and this is one of the results.

Fusion is an older digital painting from the 00’s. It was painted in Photoshop using a simple graphic tablet (no 3D-modeling or anything like this).

As a child I fell in love with comics. And soon I wanted to be able to draw cartoons and comic characters myself. One of the first drawing-ambitions I can remember is that I tried to copy ‘Lucky Luke’ when I was 3 or 4 years old. Because my father and my brother had quite some solid drawing skills as well they could teach me the first lessons, which was motivating as well. That’s how I got into drawing.

I do not have the ambition to create super-elaborated fine art drawings. I like the spontaneous flow, chaos and helping the characters to evolve. But it’s them who are the actors, not me. To me it’s ok to stay quick & dirty on the paper, because the pace helps to stay in the moment and in touch with the little creatures.
