The Foundation. 2017.
The wooden floor is usually seen as a foundation, which adds a sense of warmth to the rooms of the home, as well as resistance against tear and restlessness. The artificial parquet panels used for flooring depict an image of wood slabs, a visual memory of appearances similar to the personal remembrances and collective myths that we carry within ourselves. I paint upon the parquet panels depict family encounters taking place in the present, while adding to the surface images taken from the past. Following the first stage, the paintings go through an additional process of dismantling and reassembly.
