"25 or 6 to 4" is a extra large, contemporary abstract. It has a strong gestural expression, reminding on the abstract expressionists. With its large size and the impressive colours and contrasts its a masterpiece for a large room.
The title comes from one of my favorite songs, "25 or 6 to 4" from Chicago. It's a really inspiring, swinging and powerful song, that I heard lots of time while painting on this work and especially in the phase of finishing. So I decided to name this work after the song, because it expresses these inspirational swinging and powerful feelings.
"25 or 6 to 4" is painted on canvas and comes rolled in a tube. It has silver metal grommets on the upper side (about every 50 cm), so you can hang it flat on the wall. If wanted, you can take it to a professional framer to get it stretched on wooden stretchers (in this case please consider, that it will be a bit smaller after stretching, maybe about 10 cm width and height), but this is not needed. The hanging with the grommets is a really unique way to stage it.

I find my inspirations in colours and materials - for example in a beautiful deep turquoise mountain lake or in the washed-out grey of concrete in a city. Based on such impressions and inspirations I commence my work and my artwork often comes to life in little series. Each painting is unique and the creation and development of each painting is a time consuming and slow process, usually lasting many weeks and in some cases up to a few months.
My paintings are acrylic mix paintings, for example, acrylic paint with charcoal, oil pastels, pencils, spray paint and many other artistic materials. I often combine these materials with natural materials and objects from nature (e.g., leaf seeds) as well as with ash, sand or building materials such as grout or plaster.
My pieces of art are created informally. Each step builds on the previous step, leaving room for chance but also for corrections and erasures, until the final finished artwork has evolved as a composition of colour, shape, texture and surface.
Due to the complexity of my paintings and the interplay of (collage) materials, my works are not simply one-dimensional, rather they entice the viewer not just to explore them with their eyes but also to touch them.
My works of art are informal; they are my personal expressions of my experiences and impressions and each piece of art is truly unique and only one of its kind.
