Fragmented discs are lined up along a grid, but a rapport is still avoided. Within the pictorial space there are empty spaces, unprocessed areas on the sheet that cross the motif as white lines. These lines run parallel to the edge of the picture and have the same width as the used frame. There is an analogy between the line on the paper and the one drawn by the frame. In the perception of the work, this analogy enables a transition from the pictorial space to the real space, which favours the reception of the motif, the paper and the frame as a unity, as a pictorial object. Despite the ostensible formal issues, the play of colour is the drive and starting point of my investigations. In this current series of prints, quality contrasts and cold-warm relations is what I focus on the most.
