Man perceives himself through his connection to someone else or to something else. The sun on the skin irritates us in a certain way. It leads to perception and consciously or unconsciously finds entry into our thoughts. It influences our mind and our being.
Through the addition of stimuli, the previously present sensations and thoughts are evaluated and processed in a different way. Priorities can shift, facts and circumstances can have a new connotation, etc.
This happens just like that. Unintentional.
In music I am fascinated by the delicate and fragile moments that can arise within a sound. By approaching the limits of the playable and audible, a strange, fragile and poetic world emerges from the interplay between the intention of the interpreter and the “let it emerge”. This simply happens when space is created for it. Not unintentional but not completely controllable.
The perception of a work of art is not so much about the work as it is about the recipient, who, through his or her perception, gives the work a new existence.
Works of art are created to perceive oneself in a new and unique way through them. To feel oneself in a special way. The examination of good works of art opens hidden inner spaces in people. It unsettles, enriches, renews ideas and helps us to make connections between facts, things and situations or to reassess already established connections.
Art leads us to constantly shift the boundaries of our thinking, feeling and being, to renegotiate with ourselves and the world. It is therefore indispensable to refine and develop man’s being and spirit.
The most profound way for me to nourish this process is to be active as an artist myself. I think this is the reason why I do it. The hope that other people will experience my art as enriching and that it will help them to open up new spaces for thinking and feeling comes second. I simply don’t know how I could control such processes. They remain strangely mysterious to me.
