Pastel


Pastels in oil-pastel colours are applied to the coarse or grainy textures of Canson or Ingres paper - they are the results of inner searching, and take the character of premonitions, dreams and reminiscences. Here complexion and expression are beholden to the spirit of the landscape, being mostly produced while travelling or en route. The porous velvet of the pastels floats between painting and drawing - sensitive, fragile and groping. The forms appear as condensed sihlouettes, or in the rhythm of lines of ornamental orders.
