Essential to experience these artworks is watching the painting process. Therefore you should/could watch movie about it here ‘paint in motion’:

The colours of texture have this feeling! Because it’s the thing I feel that determines it’s form and at the end perhaps the form that determines my feelings. It’s about discovering the color of movement and the movement of color. In the words of the artist: “These are dancing paintings instead of dancing painters”

 

In some of the paintings an iridescent color is used for parts of the painting, as a result there’s a different glow and feeling depending on the changes in the angle of view or the angle of illumination. This results in a painting that continuously changes and communicates with the viewer depending on the movement of the viewer.
