Paintings, 2008 - 2012
The common ground between my paintings and my objects is a balance between a still recognisable motif and pure plastic form.
They are above all formal, although something of the figurative remains in them.
The starting point of an abstract image very often comes from figurative forms, brought on by everyday reality. I am convinced that a real abstraction does not exist beyond of its idea. More than in abstraction, I am interested in the oddity of the received form, the multiplicity of senses which it evokes.
Chance plays an important part in my work. At the beginning I have a very general idea of what I want to do. I start by putting some pieces of paper on the floor and I observe what happens. Often the process is long. If I am perceptive, sometimes something happens. The image lets itself be followed and, slowly, something appears.
