I Spy – You’re Hiding. Gouache, ink, gesso, and charcoal on paper, 80 x 75 cm, 2016.
This painting is part of a series of paintings that I call “I Heart See You Spirit”. They are all painted on top of discarded older paintings or drawings. On these paintings you can still se traces from the discarded ones. It can be shapes or patterns that I have saved. Or sometimes I have just followed the main structure from the first painting/drawing.
These paintings are also a bit more rough in their sense, since I have used both much more graphite and charcoal than I normally do.
Key words for these paintings are – Inner core. The heart. The soul. Inner demons. Your own history.
