Mind map, detail
Autobiographer, 120×160 cm, oil on canvas
These paintings provided the starting point of the series ’You can’be a professional autobiographer’ that I produced a year later. (They also gave them their title.) The questions and problems related to the birth of a new painting become the prime theme of the artwork for the first time in my practice. On one painting, we can read to-do lists, reading lists, reminders I wrote to myself, or track the progression of the other work. The second painting acts as a brief commentary on the first one.
