I've never bought a pre-prepared canvas before. I make my canvases myself.
For me, the basis of a painting is the wooden frame on which I then stretch the canvas myself.
Thus I can play with the form of the final work from the start.
In the beginning I started with simple squares and rectangles, then I let my works come into space,
first as painterly wall sculptures, later also free-standing paintings.
In the end I started experimenting more with the shapes and structures.
Since I only use the means of painting, I regard my three-dimensional sculptures as paintings.
