About The Artwork

THIS PAINTING COMES WITH A BUILT-IN WOODEN FRAME as seen in the photo. A painting is always a painting on a support. A color is always a color at some specific location in space. Let the differential couples [painting/support] and [color/space] define the object of painting, itself called a Painting. A location in space is given by a number of dimensions (our habitual 3 spacial + time). A location in color is given by a number of dimensions as well (our standard of hue + saturation + luminosity + time). A Painting is an object described in an 8-dimensional coordinate system. This particular cycle of Paintings corresponds to an exploration of compositions in the category of [2/4] dimensions for the [painting/support] couple, where the painting is compressed to a line (1 space dimension + time = 2 dimensions) and the support is expanded to a volume (3 space dimensions + time = 4 dimensions). The choice of materials is oriented to a diversification of textures which further develop the baroque aesthetic of the Paintings. This procedure has been dubbed ‘linear painting method’, a technical machine that operates on several pictorial flows.
