Compared to other earthlings, in the end a human being does not only leave a carcass on earth, but also many awful things. While giant reptiles, which once ruled the planet, left amazing footprints, humans leave ecological footprints, deeper than many an other human abyss. Maybe future intelligent lifeforms will be amazed but also shocked about a kataklysm, visible as a sharp cut in the deposit of sediments. But not like elsewhere meteor strikes or movements of the earth´s crust are the reason, humanity is the natural disaster. They build castles in the air, live like there is no tomorrow and bite the hand that feeds them. In the end soulless souls wander about ghost towns until everything turns into dust.
The artist´s current creative period is concerned with the possible expiration of humanity on earth and what may be thereafter. Especially the humans´ decadent consumerism, which systematically destroys the planet, bothers him as a nature lover. But finally the earth will outlast humanity and create the next geological era after anthropocene.

Like water hollows the stone, a flood of tourists deluges beautiful places all over the world every day, destroying nature, culture and art. Mostly people like famous things just because they are famous, not because they really like them.

Once feral lords of the earth, ruling savage forests, we are now lost in the shopping center, trapped in the traffic jam, bound to our computer. Offenders but also slaves. God just moved to the house next door, from the cathedral to the temple of consume.

Humans are destroying a large part of planet earth´s green lung and sealife. They poison the air and the ground.
Some of them, because they are greedy and egoistic. The preachers.
But most of them, because they are convenient, ignorant or simply stupid and buy things they don´t need. The followers.
That seems to feel normal for most first world slaves, because a capitalistic totalitarianism creates a normality beyond nature and sanity.
Even if you, in your anthropocentric view, think that animals are like things and environment doesn´t matter, also many humans suffer and die from your meat and dairy consumption in your nazi fortress, because your food eats their food and the future of all current earthligs.
Your children and grandchildren will curse you for your cannibal-like self destructive behaviour.
Humanity is doomed, because they degenerated their feelings and intuition, being supernatural intelligent in a machine-like relationship to nature, other earthlings and each other, although they are simply animals.
Maybe mother earth is lucky to get rid off human scum so fast, to have some time to regenerate and create some nice new earthlings.
* Trier *   2020   130x110cm oil/canvas
Unstoppably machinery humanity rushes towards its demolition. Like a furious train in a timeline with a dead end. Technical evolution explodes while morality and spirituality are carved in stone for centuries.

Earth is the reason for our life. If we destroy our planet, there is nothing anymore to stand on and we fall into the void. We poison a paradise and create hell on earth. Explore space and forget, that heaven is in the ground we stand on. When we die, we go back into earth.

Beside a cure for body and soul, movement is a great inspiration. Experience different places and situations creates different perspectives and forces creativity. What started with a festival in Rotterdam and a bike trip to Italy, ended up with human bones and a mysterious stonebox in the ground in the backyard of a church. Each of these paintings has a personal background, an emotional adventure at a special place on earth, our almighty mother. Unfortunately most humans in the first world are stupid egoistic motherfuckers, who don´t want to move. Fuck off and die! Goodbye.
