Lovefuse II. tempera on cotton, 2015/2016, 20 x 24" (50 x 60 cm)
I paint with tempera on cotton, mixing the pigment powder with eggwhite and water. I apply and remove it with different brushes, paper-tissue, rags and or water. The image of the painting evolves and emerges, I keep working on it over time. After some time the work reaches completeness, the image finds it's way out to communicate with people. The whole process usually takes a few months, although sometimes the image finds it's way out much quicker, in one or two sessions only.
The directness of drawing and painting is unique and essential and it always will be. It's part of us, part of our world since early days. Drawing and painting started when we first noticed the naturally pigmented materials like charcoal and colorful soil, fascinated as we are by their appealing colors.
