When I take a look around I find that I´m surrounded by the world. My point of view is subjective in every case. Surely I could choose an other perspective in my mind, but that would be an abstraction.
The experience of „being in the world“ forms my consciousness and it leads on visual perception to a form that does not fit the geometric space. The facts of my viewpoint are leading consequently to the form of a sphere. As a subject I´m always in the center of my sphere. The objects in the space, that surrounds me, appear on the inner surface of my visual sphere. That is my natural perspective and the symbolic form of my painting.
