Statement

“What is painting in 2018? I try to answer this question through a new technique dubbed Neo-Pastiche. I practice Neo-Pastiche through intense technical studying of the masters of abstract painting such as Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Hilma Af Klint that result in original works. I believe the impact of these artistic forces cannot be bounded in art-historical periods and can still survive today through Neo-Pastiche. This series is dedicated to Hilma Af Klints “The Swan”, 1915. I see this painting as a gesture to continue Klint’s exploration of color and form in painting through geometric shapes, showcasing the potential of Neo-Pastiche”.
