History of a painting

Artwork Description

This book tells the story of one of my paintings, which was begun on 29 November 2005 and finished on 9 February 2006. It reproduces on a 1:1 scale the stratifications of colour of the painting “Sedimentation”, Venice 2006, 18x16 cm, oil on canvas. I asked Barry Schwabsky to get involved with my work and he decided to participate with a poem rather than with a critical text. As my book shows, the process and the making of the painting, as well as Barry Schwabsky’s poem "Diary of a poem" talks about the making of a poem. A small diary completes the book, which documents the colours used in the construction of the painting through small brushstrokes.
