“I could not work as an artist without my knowledge as a maxillofacial surgeon. And vice versa to me, it seems impossible to create successful aesthetic an reconstructive facial plastic surgery without my artistic background. Clearly my medical training reflects in my art, as does my artistic background strongly influence my work as a surgeon.”
"The symbiosis of art and science has always been the impelling force and philosophy of my artistic work. The human body in all of its facets and aspects still remains the biggest mystery and inspiration to mankind. Its beauty gives the artist an infinite number of motives and possibilities for expression. Sharing this inspiration with the observer is the primary duty of my work."
