Artist Description

Re-Framing Dreams III was actually the first one in the series that I painted. Here the challenge I faced was especially in the painting of his clothing – how to keep the brushstrokes rough and impressionistic, and yet not lose too much detail. The same applied to the face. I wanted to keep the lovely fluid and loose paint marks made with the thin paint, and yet give a hint of his features by working in the bare minimum of detail in the eyes, mouth and in the one ear. In all these paintings I especially focused on the act of painting – the application of the paint on the wooden surface. I explored new mark makings and new textures. It was also a challenge to allow the wooden surface to become part of the work, and knowing how much of its surface to integrate into the artwork.
