For this exhibition I have chosen a short, encrypted form of my name:
It is a test, a play with a long-standing desire for simplicity, for comprehension. I wish, even if only for a moment, to simplify a complicated name and, perhaps even more, to simplify a complicated painting practice which I do not know how to name.
I reduced the letters of my name because there were so many. There is so much of everything. Enough to get enough. How to get out of it? How to paint ? Make a painting to get through it? Through the failure to remember for instance.
In my painting I’m piercing through the forms using “non-forms” erasure. Like if I was looking for what’s behind them.
