When painting my coloristic squares,
I combine objects of free expression and plain color fields.
Researching begins with the free expression.
Then, how to find a surrounding to the object -
what combination of color enhances both ?
How to find an asymmetrical balance between
the volume and the density of the color, and the lightness of the object ?
It takes several years and seveal layers of paint,
until I find the right combination of color and form.
Why hurry ?
Surface structure reveals time passed with repeated efforts,
and the surrounding paint field becomes thick and heavy
and rich of everything,
while the original object remains light and pure.
Maybe this is an analogy of an optimum life span
of an individual particle -
existing in space and time -
as a free expression, an entity of integrity.
