“In the near futur, he signs his paintings with “unknown master”. According to strict rules that he intensivied every day, his work became an outrageous delight. It was easy to recognise and endless was the wish of mind and eyes to stay in the state of it’s perception. In the late Future he created an number of exatct copies of very old traditional works, done by and titled as “unknown Master”. These masters lived a long time before, and from his perspective they prohibited his work, foreseeing his art, and they honoured him by inventing the rules he followed. In the past Future, his Person became forgotten and his paintings, joined the place where “Unknown master” indicated the rule, that had to be carried out to praise the one who dissapeared in it.” (Christoph Rothmeier 2010,excerpt of the Publication: track 42.. , neue Kunst in Hamburg e.V. 2011)
