I worked in many areas of music in the 1980s and 1990s. As a drummer, lyricist and composer, with many tours at home and abroad. (" Channel 5 "/" Tatärä "/" Deaf Scotsmen " and others) Therefore music has always been a strong impulse for me. In 1988, with the help of many friends, I founded the project "Deaf Scotmen". In 1990 an album was recorded at Okko Bekker´s Audiplex Studio in Hamburg. The album title was called " EGO TWIST ".
Referring back to this project, I have now started the "Ego Twist" series from 2020. It is also about music, music titles and texts. Many titles mean a lot to me, I have chosen others because of their possible new meaning in today's time reference.
There are also many levels of meaning overlapping here, such as : Material, image fragments, text and spontaneous painting.
Much of the content is of a personal nature and arises from the new "lockdown culture" in which we have all fallen back on ourselves. Nevertheless, the works can of course also be read individually by each viewer. The openness of the works is very important to me here
The works are all "framed" with simple assembly wood. The texts and image fragments are here worked over the "frame", so belong to the work. The frame is often used in the representation of works of art as an enhancement and a sign of high value. (Many very highly valued works are in museums often even in triple framing: original with frame / extra framing by the collector / as well as protective framing against theft and destruction; "framed".)
I would like to ironize this form of auratisation with my frames. Just as once again the seriousness is not diminished by the use of irony, but real life can only be imagined with both fragments.
