The painter’s latest series of works he calls Dome Paintings – the title calls to mind paintings on ceilings and the inner surfaces of domes and cupolas, which are often designed to create the illusion of an opening at the top, suggesting in temples and churches that we are stealing a glimpse at another, higher world.
His glaze paintings, for which he has up to now applied ink in multiple layers onto repeatedly soaked unprimed canvas, wet in wet, are now painted in a direct gesture onto primed, glaringly white surfaces in the alla prima mode. The associative wanderings through silent worlds, sometimes enveloped in luminescent fog and bathed in pale light, have suddenly made way for crystal-clear, sharply outlined chromatic colour schemes.
