Paintings

I have made paintings for more than twenty years and they carry the dilemma of the permanent object. Naturally and as a counter balance for this heavy weight that painting carries, I approach it as a process-based practice. Some paintings take years to be finished, they are always changing and eventually I stop. The end of the process is one based on pure intuition. A frequent characteristic in my recent paintings is to leave part of the canvas and linen unprimed and unpainted. This accentuates the exposure of the layered paint, giving away part of the process to the audience.
