On a formal level the paintings below investigate color interaction and the illusory space color inhabits. The idea to create the paintings emerged from my interest in the use of color in Paul Cezanne’s work and in his application of parallel diagonal strokes which tended to reinforce the flatness of the picture plain.
I have also been influenced by the color research of Josef Albers.
