“art follows nature” is the philosophy of AMAROT. In the beginning there are always extraordinary finds, designed by nature. The idea for the art piece follows, combining and using extraordinary, long-lasting, natural materials.
For my works I use natural stones, minerals, petrified stones, gemstones, archaeologic artefacts, shells, antlers, eggs, nuts, different timbers, wool and felt, bones, gold, silver, leaf gold, leaf silver and leaf copper, pearls and colour.
Art provides sensible evidence of inexhaustible and limitless abundance of human awareness. The creative prozess demands from the artist to embrace the area of concept freedom: S/he’s like a white, sheer, empty canvas where absolutely all can be shown.
I’m understanding art in that manner Thomas Hoover described it in his book “Zen Culture”: The viewer is led away by the artwork from analysis, interpretation and categorisation. He immerges in the stream of enthusiasm and lust for life. In front of a felicitous artwork the viewer loses the sense of ME and IT.
