Obsessional Home Improvement

Posted: December 14, 2009 in Page 2: Early Work

Dimensions: 122 by 122 by 8 cm, framed.
Media: Paint on wood panel, and wooden elements.

Good example of the artist’s primary theme: life and death, creation and destruction, good and bad, together in the same place at the same time. Vast empty grey square juxtaposed with a bright white rectangle that is highlighted with vibrant orange pin-stripes. At the center of attention, a small white square sheet of wood that is broken over a stick. And around this square sheet of wood the wood panel is gouged out leading down and around to the signature L.

In a mixed-media work such as this one, the craftsmanship is of utmost importance, for practical reasons as well as personal: the more solid the work is, the better the artist feels about it.
