For many years I have been taking photographs at each stage of my work on canvas. Sometimes the painting changes to the point of being unrecognizable: interesting metamorphoses hide under the new layer of paint and remain only in digital format. All of these hidden phases somehow strangely manifest themselves in the end result. In the new stage of work it becomes possible to continue a search that had been interrupted in the previous one, to follow a different “path”.
For me, these transformations exemplify one of the most valuable aspects of oil painting technique.
