as far as I can trace back there are several approaches; one is taken by the gestural drawing/scribbles; countless overlays of lines thrown out as if from a quick, expressive gesture, of the most varied strength and color. layered over and over each other, building up a fine and dense multicolored fabric, reminding me sometimes of certain pastel drawing techniques.

another approach is the inaccuracy/disintegration structure; the principle of having a theoretical idea, but a pretty imperfect realization or decay over time. in a way that we often encounter in life. (refer to: background – tapestries)
but there is most certainly a more unsentimental, main approach; the fascination of thousands of overlapping lines, which gradually reveal shapes. the basic joy of playing and experimenting with elementary shapes and colors. the depth and complexity of these mikado structures become a visible experience at the latest with relatively large printouts one can perceive this dense impenetrable and seemingly never fully discernible structural space.
