I have started to occupy myself with art in the early 80ies. After my studies of History of Arts at the University of Innsbruck I took up my job as an art teacher at Bundesgymnasium Blumenstraße in Bregenz. Due to some circumstances - kids, kitchen, costs - I neglected my "artistic career" more and more during the following years.
It was only when I started my sabbatical year that I accidently came across the book "Collage lab" written by the American artist Bee Shay, which enabled me to live out my fondness for different topics and techniques.
In nearly 52 weeks' time I created lots of pictures using 52 different techniques and I decided to put them all in a book. I have more and more ideas ever since. Some of the works are shown in the picture gallery.
The "Galerie" give you some insights into my longlasting work, too. It presents a showcase full of collages, mixed media, photographs and calligraphies.
Printed versions of my new work also exist, in form of two books and one calendar:
a) Project "52 weeks": My first project, consisting of 52 collage-techniques. It's a collection of 280 collages
b) Project "Calendar 2016": An art calendar containing visions.
c) Project "The tree book": All thes pictures came into existance whilst my countless walks close to the
Lake of Constance.
d) Project "100 Weeks 100 Pictures": I used a wide range of different techniques (Collages, Image
Transfers, Monoprints, Assemblages, Egg White glaze) to produce my two yaer art
work on the Topics of loneliness, fugacity, escapism and other
e) Project "Fantasies 2017 and 2018": Pictures with mixed media techniques
e) Project "Route 66": Impressions of my journey to the Route 66, Images in a book with mixed media
techniques; the first 20 are finished
