I force materials that prefer to repel each other to combine. On the canvas, paints on oil basis, such as red-lead, priming, lacquer or beeswax are overlaid with acrylics. They form 'unwilling layers'. Another way of combining is by making unstable mixtures. This playing with the materials allows me to create images that have been unearthed from memory. I use as a guide a world as it appears under the microscope. Not what can be seen, but how it can be seen. Structures and textures, with their own histories of origin, but formed within a system with clear rules.
