The Square and the Color

Square but not Square

In the Western world most architecture is based on squares and rectangles. In India the square is the geometric symbol for the root chakra/ the basis. Base. The research on colours through loose and spontaneous systems combine the need for freedom and structure, when it is done with loose and dynamic strokes. Then a blob suddenly can be related to a loose square and even a tuliphead tulip but can look like a rectangle. I have an ongoing relationship with the square. Times of intensive work mostly on big canvases where the physical display / the unfolding of the abstract quality of the square can mark itself in a rhythmic universe of challenging colours.
