Coming from theatre stage design, Scale has always been a given. after form and color I consider it the third tool we painters have at our disposal. I started with walls and than expended to floors.
working on walls in-situ turned them naturally into performances. working on windows with me on one side and the public on the other, created all kind of gaze games that made the process somewhat interactive.
Shifting to floors made it extremely interactive, not only it allowed scaling up to what feels like 1:1 to me, I just loved seeing people walking IN the work. working horizontally melts away the gap between the interior landscape and the exterior world we refer to as our reality. It aloows people to explore their own interior landscape through the exploration of the work, shifting the focus from interpretation to experience.
