The paintings try to explore what the strong changes of habitats caused by humans mean for other living beings and their development. There is an atmosphere of departure, differently depictesd by different species. It shows that the dynamic development of biodiversity involves many aspects that we cannot predict or control. We are asked to perceive and acknowledge the difference of our fellow residents and to give them space appropriate to their nature.

What is the role of the species in the further development of biodiversity? Are they only passively exposed to the changes? In the paintings insects are depicted as actors, whereby strong colors and dynamic movements, away from the viewer, underline the power of the processes. Different insect species move in an individually perceived environment that offers them different perspectives. We recognize the environment only partially because another specific perception is included.
