Art Description

Painting: Watercolor on Paper.

These paintings are painted with a method developed and solely used by the artist himself.

Essential in experiencing this body of work is the process, watch the video here:

The colors of texture have this feeling! It's the thing I feel that determines it's form and at the end perhaps the form that determines my feelings. It's about discovering the color of movement and the movement of color. In the words of the artist: "These are dancing paintings instead of dancing painters"

In some works an iridescent color is used for parts of the painting which result in a different glow and feeling depending on the changes in the angle of view or the angle of illumination. This results in a painting that continuously changes and communicates with the viewer depending on the movement of the viewer.
