Astonishing Alterations for the Anterograde Amnesic
The Brushstrokes painting series where the compositions are made through a plurality of identically molded brushstrokes, is an examination of the aesthetic consequences of repetition. Recently, the series have evolved into included not only multiplied identical brushstrokes, but also, almost identical. Videlicet the same brushstrokes but different in form and length, a reference to digital painting, where you control the gesture, but are limited to a constant group of brushtools. The Flat Gradient Painting series, is build up by around 10-12 thin layers of paint. Each layer is painstakingly painted in oil, smoothed out to a flat surface with soft gradations without visible brush marks, over painted alternately with gestural brushwork of melted wax and new layers of oil. Finally the wax is melted again and peeled of. The underlying layers become visible through forms of gestural brushstrokes.
