Inspired by digital art, opt-art and constructivism, I pursue a taste for overcharged simplicity, while pushing an axonometric structure of a subject.
I select subjects that provide me with an archetype, a commonly recognized model, to construct from. In a contemporary painting context any subject is self-referencing.
I work through a set of geometric limitations that will suggest the viewer the complete idea, building through a pattern to the fundamental visual edge of recognition.
My method needs to be consistent and slow paced to achieve the effect I´m pursuing many layers of information to achieve ordained complexity. I start with a grid and the toning of the canvas, followed by chalk drawings based on sketches, setting the value composition with transparent under paintings, up to the first layer of color keys that will be re-stated constantly.
