Matti Freeman
Painting is where physical substance and the compulsion to create come together to form a child. A painting takes shape through playing with the materials, adding and subtracting, marking and covering up. I continue this until a balanced composition or idea emerges. Motifs, symbols, words, and representational objects may emerge, but these are mostly un-planned. My experience of painting is a lot like sitting down at the piano and improvising. It's the interplay of practiced technical formulas and intuitive expression. Alongside acrylic paints, some of my favorite materials and mediums include bits of paper and canvas, ephemera, ink, drywall joint compound, pumice gel, and graphite.
