The white canvas area represents an operating table for me. Painting tools perform as surgical instruments. Scalpels and various hooks. The transformation of fine pink tissue into atrophic tissue and back to full healing. The actual act of renewal and destruction is gradually introduced into painting traps. Tiny layers are created like human skin. I then tie the layers together and literally uncover the new skin. And so a new, vibrant life emerges. Figures grow, sometimes they seem to be frozen. That’s when I decide to use a glass gel that is fluid and unbalanced. But I use the instruments inside the mass to cut and cut until frozen stars are made.
