Transcription


I’ve done a lot of things, I’ve done pottery, batik, prints. Studying at university helped me find other ways of making art. Today, if I must pin down one technique, I say that I do paintings. But it’s so reductive to say that you paint, the first image that comes to mind is that of a canvas, brushes and paint. Yet often, my paintings contain very little paint. And I can just as well work on metal as on canvas or wood. I frequently use etching ink to paint. I’m very curious, I’m very hands-on so I don’t stop at what is supposed to be done or how it was done before. I mix everything.
