Oil Paintings | series: “The World I Truly Know” (2016-17) and “Your Guess Is as Good as Mine” (2015-16)
Technique used: successive layers of paint swept and scratched away with household brushes
For these two series of paintings, I got rid of the traditional paint brushes and replaced them with household brushes. I also changed the direction of the canvas, laying it flat on the floor so that I could sweep away layers of paint using a broom.
Little by little, this technique evolved too: I added an extra step where, canvas back on the wall, I would decide of the zones to work on further by applying more paint, or on the contrary erasing and smudging the excess – always with small kitchen brushes.
On these paintings, the household brush-strokes are very visible and accentuate the woven aspect of the canvas – I like to think of them as a link to my textile background.
