In my artist’s toolbox there are gouaches that I make with pigments; paper; glue, and scissors. Working with gouache I find myself seduced by its density and opaqueness, its almost immediate luminosity. Assembled they find their rightful place in a “cosmos” (order). In trying to create a free space, structured, open and complete; the colour allows me to move forwards to share a source of Energy.
I construct my painting like architecture. Beneath the seemingly ordered forms there is a creative “chaos”: rough outlines and strokes cast “at random”. This will then be partially or totally covered by coloured paper.
