I create my own substrates to work on. It ranges from concrete to cement mixed with paper and fibre. The abstraction starts at the stage of substrate creation, where often random objects leave their impression and sometimes become a part of the work. The spontaneous impressions are a starting point for me to then work on with paints, pigments, coal, sawdust to even cow dung. Wood and wires hold them together both physically and conceptually.
