Six identical paintings in space, 2021


Oil and spray on wood, hinges

The painting has 108 surfaces. It will not reveal everything at once; rather, it sometimes becomes concealed in the folds of its hinges. It becomes part of the structures of the exhibition space, hanging down as a line-like sketch or camouflaging to the wall. In my work I explore transformation, metamorphosis and the essence of painting. The work is composed of six technically identical pieces. As paintings, these pieces assume various positions within the space, forcing the perspective to be scattered. The planed timber has been liberated from its original function as a support structure to hold something immaterial. The painting moves towards the boundaries of dismantling and reorganisation – areas where things change their form.
