The painting ‘Untitled’ has as leitmotif to specify a colour world, an overall timbre – a porous light, resting in the wild and labyrinthine, the rotten, the shady, the filtered, and torn. The pastose colour layer of the painting and the frayed texture serve to refine the refraction of light in the surface and to elicit the richness of colour, which is largely formed by optical mixtures. It’s a slowly matured vision – a result of prolonged immersion in color shade effects.
The association with natural forms in the broad sense is obvious, but it is a character derived from the work of the material. Despite countless nature studies and landscape photos that underlie the work, there is no portrayal of a particular locality or landscape. By contrast, it is an imaginary landscape. The world of painting is an abstraction. A new reality. A journey of discovery with unknown destination. A confrontation with the indefinite.
