XXXXXXXXXX 2012-Ongoing
Enamel on masonite
35 x 48 cm each

The first work in this series, whose variations are based entirely on the X mark, was painted in 2012 and has since become a kind of iconic feature in the artist's practice. The color combination of the now 40+ paintings of this motif, always in the small format of 35 x 48 cm, range from black and white to an infinite combination of solid colors. The smooth and continuous surface of each painting is opaque, bearing no signs of brushstrokes or edges between the colors, re-establishing the relationship between foreground and background into a decidedly non-hierarchical composition, perfectly symmetrical, evenly distributed. Everything is itself and its opposite.
