“FADING builds on the large-format work LIGHT from 2020. It is mostly composed of the primary colors yellow and red. In contrast to earlier works, however, the composition almost completely covers the surface of the painting. The background is applied in a pastose manner, shining through the delicate application of paint.
On closer inspection, the minute nuances of color melt like poetry into delicate shades. Thus, hundreds of nuances of a delicate shade of orange emerge from the combination of yellow and red, while red and purple blend into a delicate lavender. These intermediate areas fascinate me. The combination of the individual colors gives rise to a state of intoxication not unlike a melody in music.”
