Well, of course, I have … it is a kind of a basic tool with which I start the process ‒ that is ink, very
traditional water colour paintings. But instead I just paint on it, I really record the whole process
when I am doing the painting.
So that it is connected with time. My work is never static. It is always moving. So, I am really
interested to see how can it evolve as a film based on an artwork?
After I create, it is kind of like a video-film-based painting. And then, I use a kind of a film production
method to make it into layers ‒ many many layers with animations, with effects and to create
something that is more presented like a film.
So, this is kind of a cinematic painting for me. People can … especially these days, I feel that ‒
especially the young audience, they are very adapted to the new media, such as moving image,
song … So, I want to present a work that can have something that they feel close to them.
The test and a sketch with the ink paintings and I have the film camera to record the whole process.
All the process of this ink painting will be transformed into digital format that I can manipulate with
the computer. So, with the computer I create it as a moving image before the film and all the
animations and then at the end it will be a time-based artwork that is presented in a kind of a screenbased
environment. Or projections around. So, basically this is the basic kind of process of the work.
It’s very difficult to really say when is the time to stop because this thing will go forever. Because,
why I am doing a process like the ink painting, I do the gesture, it’s more like a meditation for me. I
can repeat forever with these actions. But it is interesting that … when I create artwork through the
ink process and then into the computer and then finally, I check the results ‒ if that result has a
feedback to me ‒ can talk to me ‒ and I know that it’s time to move forward to the next step. And
so, it’s an ongoing process. Even though that the artwork that I have done already but maybe they
can be reproduced, they can become extended versions with a deeper meaning and then be
presented, later on. So, for me, they are also … it is also a process.
