path in the world outside.
The ball in the distance – to me the most harmonious form – reminds me of the golden ball
in der DER FROSCHKOENIG in the Grimm Brothers ' collection of fairy tales , a symbol
for our quest for completion .
The egg in the tree might symbolize our wish for rebirth and eternal life.

"With my works i want to show that reality is infinite, consisting of the world we percive with our sences and the world of the psyche, emotions, thoughts and dreams. In this INFINITE REALITY my main theme is the human being with all its facets. 2019 I discovered a technique to create Digital Art: By means of transparency I combine two of my paintings to create a new work with a new message."
