Sometimes, I paint with colour first and then with black. Sometimes it is the other way round. Sometimes, I start from nothing, without knowing how it is going to end up. And sometimes I have a little idea of what I want to do. When I want to enlarge a drawing I do not use squaring up techniques. It gets bigger by itself. I also use collage that are included in the composition. Concerning the colours, I have a greater choice now, for my first canvases I was painting with colours only available at the Art Academy
I do not follow any rule. It all depends. I have been taken in by the black, and now, when I turn to black it is finely drawn. The text or poem that comes with the painting is written afterwards. At the beginning, I was using purer and simpler forms, and little by little it became full of detail. Actually it depends, I painted smaller pastels, and crazy lingerie, it’s completely baroque, with knights and triangular Middle-Ages kings. Acrylic was invented to render the watercolor effect on a greater scale, but you need to paint quickly. I also paint geometrical forms and underline them with black. To get any real work done you have to hole yourself up, it’s sad but true.
