1985

1985

An important year for me.
I just had my first real studio, for free, no less, the top floor of a garment factory once used for cutting cloth.

There I was, wondering what, no, how to paint.
So instead of using the usual oil paint, I bought white and black enamel house paint.
But what too paint with it? What does one paint with house paint?

So I painted an empty room.

I consider it as one of those important moment as an artist because it lay the foundation for my work for the rest of my career. I found out that the how was as much part of the subject as the what.
