STARS

At the end of the nineties the form of a star appeared for the first time in my work. Stars have since gained more and more meaning for me. Ultimately, stars have come to determine my life, they’ve become my purpose in life. Stars are a symbol for life, desire and suffering. The fascinating thing about a star is its incredible symbolic depth. A star with the same form stands for all kinds of very different things ranging from the characteristics of quality, consumption and idols to a symbol for sovereignty, revolution and finally Christmas. That shows that there’s something special, Utopian, even mystically magic about stars. The star is a popular figure in an overly visual world.

In my works I transform the star from objective reality ultimately to abstraction. Visual reality is reduced to ecstasy and decorative illusion. Compression and intensification as an expression of power and consumption.

The stars are the icons in a society in which everyone strives for balance and harmony, though it is doubtful it can be achieved. To accept the unexpected is mirrored in my work - order is the basic message of the images. Neat and clean, the stars represent a society which strives for these qualities. Moods and emotions are expressed in this way. The beholder looks in the mirror of hope. The stars are expressive, never boring. Each image embodies its own story, from hope to joyful playfulness, some of them appearing menacing, some sacred. Ultimately, the star becomes the altar of society.
