I am interested in an artistic process that has an optical result. I engage a reductivist strategy that doesn’t necessarily create a spare image. The reductivist strategy should be about questioning what is necessary in painting rather than empting out painting. I was looking at romanticist painters like Caspar David Friedrich and optical painters, and asked myself if I could mash up an optical romanticist painting. I think of the optical result as mannered thingness.
