The couples on the paintings in this series are not only intended to represent a relationship between men and women or between women and women, although I like that the viewers remain flexible to take their individual point of view with respect to gender issues. Instead, it is an attempt to visualize love in a broader, spiritual sense: like a healer’s embrace, a love within the same person for his/ her problematic or immature parts – for example.
Animals, on the other hand, I see them as very important friends and I am inspired by the shaman world where animals can be the guides to dimensions beyond everyday perception. These drawings visualize a state of soul in which all languages – those of human beings, animals, plants, the sea. . . are well understood in silence.
I think that for a more responsible sensitivity to the protection of the biosphere, only scientific information is not enough.
In my opinion, a more empathic, even amicable, relationship with nature is needed to feel part of it in a more profound way, as the German Biologist /Philosopher Andreas Weber elaborates in his book „Alles fühlt” („Everything feels”).
