Through a process i create an image rather than starting from the idea of an image. Abstraction for the sake of abstraction being not an issue for me, 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 - beyond the illusionistic rendering of reality. I have a sculptor approach to painting -what do i do with this material which change state from fluidity in a pot to being dry and solid on canvas? What happen in between is what interest me. The surface is smooth with here and there layer of thicker paint.
