These are paintings-of-paintings, and in this sense, copies, reproductions from a personal invisible gallery.
I re-member my own paintings. They'll always be copies, sometimes copies of copies. I cover only as much as I can complete in one go, therefore the canvas is divided into more or less equal "slices".
Naturally, there are differences between these different parts, as each day is different.
I do not see a real difference between writing and painting, as both gesture and intent. Just using different ideograms, that's all. My paintings are "written" with paint, an accumulations of signs, marks and "letters" correcting and partially obliterating each other, creating re-presentations sparked mostly by words and word-associations.I use words like one can use nature as reference...and this is where the power of image seems to stem from: this conceptual / perceptual balance...
...the imagery I use has to do with: the equation nature / man-made nature, the confusions and misunderstandings of human intercourse, the irrelevance of emotion, the notion of guidance, of consuming art and consuming anything else,
but especially with the paradox of failure, the luminous, celebratory sense of failure which contains its own latent success like a seed: "Fail again, fail better"(Samuel Beckett)
