I was looking for a way to paint the nature of water without illustrating it. Water is movement—flow and energy—with the line characteristics the same. Therefore, I reduced the forms and shapes I used in my paintings more and more until just the line was left.
My concept is to start each work with an intuitively placed line to which I align all of the following lines. I then build up several layers of lines. By layering lines I create a condensing as well as an overlap.
This is what I call “visual sensations” because the layering creates a shimmering effect.
While working, I find myself in a state of both, excitement and meditation.
