"fleeting" is an ongoing series with watercolor and plaster on limestone paper. The addition of plaster accelerates the drying process and the brush marks remain visible.
The series is inspired by the British artist Jadé Fadojutimi. I am particularly fascinated by her immediate, playful and open approach to painting, which is completely in the moment of doing.
By trying not to think during the process of creation (at least not on a rational level), I adopt an open attitude. In doing so, it is important to let go of control, embrace imperfection, and focus attention on material reactions and properties. This is closely related to the phenomenon of "time".
Although the actual moment of creating often goes very quickly, many of my works develop slowly and need a lot of time to dry. Often the actual work is created during my absence.
