Painting - Oil On Canvas
Yang's Walkabout is from my winter 2013 series Anima Mundi.
All the pieces in this series were action painted with oils, dusts, pigments, sand and salt. The finest Italian linen, medium texture, and wide stretcher bars were used for the canvases, so they can be wall-mounted without frames.
When I paint abstractions, I paint in an alternation of dance-like exuberance and contemplative, almost meditative self-absorbance. The pieces are usually executed alla prima, in a single wet-on-wet session.
I created the Anima Mundi series around winter solstice 2013, in an outburst of long-repressed joie de vivre! For hours, until I was completely exhausted, I flung, dripped, poured, splattered, splashed, struck, crushed, caressed and even blew around the various ingredients (the liquid ones being linseed stand oil and poppy oil). Once finished, each piece had to stay in a horizontal position for half a year. My partner constructed me a special vertical structure, a "painter's tower", for safe keeping and drying of this new kind of oil paintings. The old wine kind... -_-
For the better or for the worse, such paintings continue to live a life of their own. They mingle and jingle, entertain bugs, shape-shift across the surface or undergo in-depth metamorphoses. Depending on the area, the various surfaces and strokes slightly or significantly change, old patterns vanish or new ones emerge. Some of these changes enhance the composition, others ruin it (once you invite chance into your studio, you have to accept its whimsies, don't you?). I like to say Mother Nature cocreates with me, or me with Her!
I have been waiting for a long time to be able to photograph and present the results of my experiments, the "evolving paintings", to you. Enjoy!
