Digital mark-making

These colorful squiggles are inspired by graphics which I first designed on my iPad. Using digital brushes offers me the possibility to treat mark-making systematically. Although these are initially created with spontaneous gestures, their configuration in the composition is precisely formulated. I then trace and paint these by regarding them as motifs. The objective is to unite digital aesthetic with a hand-crafted sensibility. I deliberately allow brush-marks in their making, and I also try not to make them look too perfect when inspected closely. Technology offers me the freedom to explore otherwise unconceivable shapes, which in return allows exponential possibilities for compositions.

Still in progress.
