Question 8: How do you approach the creation of a new work? Do you have a specific method or way of initiating the process?


What I think about when starting on a new piece, it’s closer to being a response to my wish to learn. I think that when you paint, it’s a way of learning about yourself. When I start a new piece, I’ll sort of have an emotion that grows inside me and I’ll try to find the lines, find the colours. Then I go on to apply them to the canvas, and that’s the time that I’ll begin to discover what I want to do, and how that is going to translate in the piece.
