Since 2014

Realization of free artistic works with exhibition activity in the field of installation. At the end of my studies I came from painting to installation, because I used the painting ground three-dimensionally. To this day, my work is related to painting. In addition to color and carrier material, the actors space, light and movement are included. In expansive installations, textiles function between the background and the everyday material. They are installed site-specifically as abstraction filters, like a membrane between reality and the viewer's gaze. In this zone of superimposition, the viewer is confronted with his perception. The intention is to blur the border between surface, space and body.

In my most recent works, I focus on the subtle overlapping of contrasts in material and content in a manner reminiscent of our time of polarization and the intensification of opposites in society: black and white, transparent and impenetrable, approachable and abstract, monotonous and flowing. Movement and change are recurring characteristics in my process-oriented works.


2003-2013

Free artistic work in the border area between art and commerce under his own concept-art-fashion label "van reimersdahl berlin". I founded the label in 2002 for my diploma thesis "That´s glamorous now" and combined different media of artistic expression. I understand pictorial representations as a flexible form of communication that is dependent on each other. Screen, canvas, paper, textile, body or space can be image carriers. What was important to me with regard to my artificial approach was the closeness to the recipient.

Working freely with fabrics, cuts and material collages combined with colour application by brush or screen printing on T-shirts led to a sequence of chain reactions up to the creation of unique pieces, editions or collections with international sales in selected boutiques, museum shops and presentations in fashion shows, performances, exhibitions, fairs and in my own shop-studio. The financing came from sales without outside funding. References to painting have remained recognizable.
