A glance into the studio
The annual exbition MMXIX of the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich
"Caravaggio's works are that concise that we can still today easily comprehend the situation."
"I didn't want to show the role, I wanted to show the person behind it."
"Objects that create shadows also create a different area of light."
"I try to respond spontaneously to the painting."
"I want people to notice the distance to reality or any kind of truth."

"The picture itself is the composer, I'm merely supporting."
"A room that makes you hear and see at the same time."
"The approach of art is always to place it in a timeless frame."
"This is not simply a beautiful picture, it contains a whole world of stories."
