DRAG TWICE ONE CROSS

Painting is, for me, about process. I don’t start with a clear idea of a ‘finished’ image. Drawing informs and underpins the ‘laying out’. There is no hierarchy in my studio practise between drawing and painting. Drawing and painting co-exist equally.Layered. Edges. Gesture and geometry collide. Intuition and serendipity drive the work forward.

“Like a researcher in his laboratory, I am the first spectator of the suggestions drawn from the materials. I unleash their expressive possibilities, even if I do not have a very clear idea of what I am going to do. As I go along with my work I formulate my thought, and from this struggle between what I want and the reality of the material - from this tension - is born an equilibrium”.
