He became known by his figurative and abstract hypnosis paintings from the early 50s. With these works he created works by the narratives of his patients / recipients. The recipient became part of the art work. An extraordinary concept in the European contemporary art at that time. An unique approach till today.
With his somnambulistic paintings and his sculptures in the 60s made of clay and different materials he elaborated the question, how art originate in the creative process.
These works are in their form of expression and their metaphorical language to match with the new abstract expressionism. The titels of the works with creations of words and sentences become a new acustic and pictorial experience.
If you prefer to classify his somnambulic works in an art historical context, so the vary in their power of expression and technique between works from Jackson Pollock with his Drippings or the Action Painting und works of the younger generation from Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring up to A.R. Penck oder Jonathan Meese.
