Oil on canvas, 60 x 80 cm, 2018 „The Swimmer“, as every painting of mine, has exactly the meaning the individual viewer will be giving to it. Once off of my easel my paintings belong to the world.
But if you would ask me for a personal meaning, I would tell you, that it reminds me of the possibility to trust the process of life, wherever it might take me. To open my senses and to intuitively and courageously find the forces that might carry me through. The waters might represent these inner possibilities, that only appear when they are needed the most.
Like seeds that silently begin to grow in your mind and heart, when the darkest dark begins slowly to turn into light again.
The first ideas and intentions when painting a certain motif always change with the ongoing process. So there might appear some new ones as time goes by.
I like the idea, that the biggest part of what we are mentally is unconscious. Means that everything a painter has to say about his paintings is to be taken with a grain of salt.
Lots of love and courage to all of you. I‘m extremely grateful for your interest in my work and for your constant encouragement.
This Swimmer“ is ready to dive now. .
