What ideas do you explore in your work?
Different ones in each painting.
Describe your color palette.
All colors are allowed. Often strong bright colors, they seem more urgent and more willing to immediately represent an impulse, but again, it is a matter of what needs to be done at that very moment.
Describe your titles. What meaning do they convey?
A title should accompany the painting, not describe it and not confirm one meaning. It should keep interpretation open and up to the viewer.
What does “abstraction” mean to you?
Sitting here, I can hear the TV in the next room. The noise is muted by the wall, and in addition, it's in French, so that I can only hear fragments and can't really understand more than a word here and there. But those fragments become forms of their own, and I perceive them, mix them up with what I am supposed to write, and they become a document of sorts of me sitting here, of the person watching next door, of you reading it. (Funny, actually, the movie is Je t'aime, Je t'aime by Alain Resnais, an exercise in abstraction in itself.) I think that fragments, mutations, mistakes can better describe or touch something human than the depiction of a specific situation.
