I question the foundations of the support within painting, by playing with and disrupting the elements of the picture plane. I’m not attached to a form but the condition of its emergence. I find a narrative in the way a painting has been made and I am always questioning the mechanisms that build a surface.
The transparent substrate reveals the stretcher as part of the depth and allows me to paint on both sides. Layers and overlaps act as the operation of memory: by strata. Like an iceberg, what reaches the surface is only a small measure of what exists beneath.
