Strip and Spot was inspired by some inner intuitions and images. I simply allowed the vision to emerge and transferred it to the canvas. To me it represents the bottom of a water (a river?) where a precious jewel (the orange spot) lies. On the other hand - if seen as a top view - the painting shows the river from above and the jewel in the dark area to the left. The river divides the whole on two parts. It flows vertically and that means its meaning is abstract on this level.
The medium was chosen because the oil paint allows to achieve the nice mild or bright colors.
In fact this is an over-paint, painted on top of another image whose relief could be traced beneath the paint surface. The abstract approach allowed me to be totally free and less concrete, i.e. minimum illustrative about the subject matter and that's what I want - as little concreteness as possible.
