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 senses are our bridge between the incomprehensible and the comprehensible.

The most important thing for me is the direct observation of nature in its light-filled existence.
