This series is about being between two worlds and not knowing where you fit in. A kind of ontological gray zone. The raw canvas and the layers of paint plays against each other and Creates a depth with an eerie tension. It brings you in and push you away at the same time.

The idea comes from experimenting with the texture of raw linnen and the texture of painterly gestures. I released during the process that all of these painting are failures, but put together they seem to talk to each other.
