I am Andreas Claussen, german born oil painter based in Hanover. For a long time I am curious about uncertainty so that I decided to make it to an integral part of my painting process.


Working with heavily fragmented self made collages as reference images or completely from imagination challenges my knowledge base and forces me to mine what is hidden in my intuition.


So the distillation of a subject to its essence precedes its pure representation with unnecessary details. This method creates space for the viewer and all his needs, fears and desires.
