I am a painter. The gesture is the subject of the image. It’s my own handwriting that provides the source for my painterly idiom. I am interested in the trace of an irreversible action, highlighting a moment in time. These marks add up to a layered and highly concentrated balance, while the painting as a whole evokes the impression of continuing into the surrounding space. While painting I am looking for a spatial experience of the image that attracts subjective associations more than covering an idea or narrative. The image remains clear, transparent and readable down to the priming surface.
