I have a sculptor approach to painting. What are my chances
with this material that changes state from fluidity in a pot to being dry and
solid on canvas. What happen in between when spread on a surface is what
interest me. Through a process i create an image rather than starting from the
idea of an image. I trust material and frontality to always enter the field of
"representation". So the sheer presence of the painting is often
overwhelming because there is no conflict between the medium the technique used
and the image it creates. Like an object, real in its own way. The atmospheric
specter of colors emphasize this aspect of a painting that want to reach beyond
the abstract to a illusionistic rendering of reality. The surface is smooth
with here and there layer of thicker paint.
The varnish used is semi-mat.
