In my work, I am interested in reflecting on my perception of so-called reality and thereby expanding it. I am interested in a process and not in the representation of something experienced. I want to produce experiences.

I have always been addicted to the possibility of reinterpreting everything I encounter. For example, I love to see a landscape in a spot, knowing that it is not a landscape. The combination of immediacy of colour and idea is very important to me in its paradox. The way of reception through a simultaneous different interpretation of one thing (colour spot and landscape in one) triggers a very liberating irritation. It just creates a euphoric state.

I suppose that such a procedure offers a possibility to allow different dimensions of perception at the same time - memories, conceptual review and vision emanating from the image take place simultaneously. My sustained engagement with this process allows me to admit other states and to recognise the usual section of the three-dimensional world in its limitations and relativity.

For my artistic work, this means in particular a procedure that combines both the acceptance of coincidence and the simultaneous, critical conceptual approach. Randomness in my case means randomly feeding the canvas with paint and then staring at the painting until it offers an approach to realising my concept. So it's an alternating process between following the concept and painting without having the slightest idea what I'm doing:

I just don't know. I look at you (the traces of paint on the canvas) - I probably look at you from an aesthetic point of view. I know what I want to do, but I don't know how to do it. And I look at them almost like a stranger, with no knowledge of how these things came to be, and why the traces that were made on the canvas developed into these peculiar shapes. And then, of course, I remember what I wanted to do, and I try to let these irrational forms become what I originally wanted them to be.
(from: David Sylvester: Conversations with Francis Bacon, 1982)

Whenever I paint something that I don't understand at all, I am particularly sure that it will succeed. This simultaneity of instinctive feeling and intentional action allows me to be both player and spectator.

It seems as if the artist is acting like a medium-like creature seeking its way out of the labyrinth beyond time and space into the open.
(Marcel Duchamp, 1958)
