The senses are our bridge between the incomprehensible and the comprehensible.
August Macke, Self-Portrait with Hat, 1909
I am interested in the creation of space through colour contrasts rather than through simple shading of light and dark. What I most cherish is the observation of the movement of colors. The most important thing for me is the direct observation of nature in its light-filled existence.
