Abstract Expressionism or Leftover Paint Series: Although started as a coincidence and a joke, this group of paintings became my most sought-after pieces. When painting with acrylics, their fast-drying nature results in the paint leftover on the palette being wasted. While looking for ways of making use of this leftover paint to reduce waste, I applied it randomly on another canvas with a palette knife and the end product was quite interesting. Since then I always keep an extra canvas to apply the leftover paint.
This technique questions the relation between intention and chance. The colours intended for one painting and were carefully mixed, become random colours for another one. The colours that were applied with care and precision in the original painting are applied to random places on the second canvas with the sole purpose of covering it with paint. The end result is always harmonious, probably because the process itself ensures some sort of order in the chaos.
