systema naturae




The photographs on systema natuae deal with the three primary basic aesthetic forms - triangle, square and circle - by trying to reduce the natural forms, structures and surfaces of food to the primary basic forms of perception, they sharpen the focus on the essential not least on abstraction.
The forms themselves resemble their geometrical substitute and aspire to characteristics identical to their respective shape. The finest differences thus become perceptible.
The form is an expression of the inner essence. It remains abstract only to the extent that, based on the real object, it refers to possible abstractions. The works oscilliate between materiality and abstraction. To what extent the abstract or the material prevails is up to the decision of the viewer.
