The main theme of my artistic work is to point out tensions like:


stability-instability

symmetry-asymmetry

active-passive

Combined to form one sculpture, they stand for birth and death, they symbolise that all existence is endangered. Moreover the form is reduced to a minimum, almost like a monogram, free from unnecessary accessories, a substratum, in order to be able to meet all symbolic and formal demands. The name of every single sculpture of mine arises from my love for the pantheon of the ancient Egyptians, who, through their rituals, and by putting tremendous effort into the construction of pyramids and temples, sought to achieve immortality in the universal course of time. Plastic art – just like any form of art – is the attempt to achieve the status of immortality. I would consider my plastics anchored in the tradition of Austrian stone sculpture.
