    hommage à Simon Hantai | 2017 - 2019

At a time, when everyone treated the canvas with distance, Simon Hantai preferred craftsmanship and a more direct contact with the material. This connection with the material, and the ‘Pliage’ technique, with which he formed his paintings, has become highly important for me. This tactility is significant, yet it is hard to attain in technical media; however, the materialisation in the medium of photography is not even necessary. Hantai’s approach is an indication, and I wish to preserve his mentality in my artistic attitude. Partially this is the reason why the relation between painting and photography has become so important for me. I believe him to be one of the greatest artists. As I am concerned with his pliage technique, it affects all my artwork.
