For a new series I made a few thick, rough paper sheets from cellulose.
Their structure is lovely to me and so are their uneven edges. Each one is a unique piece in shape and surface, my painting as well, yet I want them to work as a group.
The sculptural surface of the paper received white and ochre pigments in binder (like #1'), but this time without shine, instead with a slightly sandy, rocky appearance.
Areas of the selfmade paper are shining through, adding to the lively surface of this minimalistic abstract painted artwork.
The colour and texture might remind some of a the beach, a rock, a country wall, a textile piece or just a feeling...
On both grounds the photographing of these fine structures was very difficult for me, but I'm hoping you can add the available photos to something whole in your mind - just think mainly white, beige and gray tones, surrounded by an orange outline...
