Crevices of Colour
It needs to be said straightforwardly: the hands practically itch to get at these paintings. You want to touch them, slide your hand over the smooth shiny strip of paint, like it was the paint of a luxury car of the surface of a designer fridge, accidentally brushing against a rough surface that’s happening farther on and feel more, dig in the grooves of colour, like in hardened plasticine.
What fascinates me, above all, are the geometricised objects in distinctive colours that emerge from the thick background, penetrating it in their drive to ‘break free’ to the surface.
