Man changes, moves the city; changes the city, moves people. Neither the people nor the environment are static. The people are specifically drawn personally, and the suggestion of clothing creates a contemporary aspect. They are montages of interlocking movement sequences in front of urban backgrounds. Composition and structure remain transparent. The artificial canon of movement corresponds to space and light. They form a synthesis of sculptural urgency.
My visual response was to experiment with combining drawing and painting. The painting process on paper or canvas is based on charcoal drawings, followed by transparent layers with watercolor, acrylic or tempera paints. The visible brushwork creates a brittle effect, a fragility that stands in contrast to the soft, impasto oil painting with which I treated the surfaces of the body and finished the picture. The individual work steps remain traceable in the “finished” image.
