for the origin of physical energy has concerned me since I can think. In the
microcosm of my childhood, the question was obvious since my irrepressible
inner energy significantly distinguished me from all other family members. And
since that was so unusual, I was often confronted with remarks of influence of
the universe on me personally from parents, teachers and later also professors.
Gravitation is considered one of the four fundamental forces of nature.
Not only does it cause mutual attraction of matter as well as other forms of
energy, due to the equivalent of mass and energy. It determines the spacious
allocation of matter in the universe, and also the earth’s orbit around the sun
and accordingly that of the moon around the earth. Also in astronomy and
cosmology, gravitation plays a mighty role.
Many creatures’ energy is directly influenced by the terrestrial
magnetic field. Thus, for example bees, migrating birds, ocean turtles and most
kinds of fish navigate along those magnetic curves. A logical conclusion has to
be that also human beings are guided, steered and irritated by those powers.
Within the fragmentality of my art, I manage to visualize an energy flux
of my own creation. This applies to earlier works, where I especially broached
the issue of erotic energy, as well to the cycle ‘Crossways Against the War’ of
2009 and 2010, where I was concerned with the most negative forms of energy and
made the brutality and results of warlike operations apparent. But also the
fascination that goes along with them.
Another stage of development of my
Energy Fields for the project ‘Personal Cosmos’ now assembles the junction of
negative and positive energies. Due to their consequential abstraction, this
aspect becomes especially apparent in the works specifically created for this
installation. In another part of the installation, as a central theme I pick up
the impact of two primordial energies clashing, of light with minerals. The
interpenetration of light through crystalline consistency creates a parallelism
to the big bang’s expansion into space. Sound as a further carrier of energy
visualizes this confrontation and embraces the volume of forces. An important
aspect for me here was to commit myself to the given spaciality and to
respectfully fit the dimensions of the light/sound/crystal installation into
the predetermined architecture in a relation of one to three.
The vibrations in my universe are
equalized with the cosmic sound of rotation in our outer space. I have an
especially strong emphasis to pinpoint the universal phenomenon of energy and
radiance, to show my personal existential orientation and the influence of
those powers, also to gain clarity on how dependent the biggest is on the
smallest as well as the smallest is on the biggest.
My art will always be a
consolidation of those elements.
