Poems On Canvas, painting project, 2023Since 2017, I have embarked upon a creative journey, utilizing the platform of my iPhone's Notes app to inscribe captivating snippets. These profound contemplations, initially shared as screenshots on Instagram stories, have evolved into a distinctive expression unencumbered by predefined objectives.
Gradually, these unassuming notes have emerged as the essence of my writing practice, unexpectedly resonating with a diverse audience. In a decisive artistic evolution, I have elected to translate these textual meditations into the realm of painting, fusing them with the aesthetic principles of Swiss contemporary art. Embracing a minimalist and refined visual language, my works evoke a sense of spatial harmony akin to the principles observed in graphic design. Drawing inspiration from the rich heritage of Swiss contemporary art, renowned for its emphasis on precision, simplicity, and an acute awareness of negative space, I aim to create a dialogue between the written word and visual art. This symbiotic relationship infuses my paintings with a captivating tension, inviting viewers to explore the interplay of linguistic and visual elements.By incorporating these introspective musings into my painterly compositions, I seek to challenge traditional notions of artistic expression and forge a unique artistic identity. The resulting artworks engage viewers in a contemplative journey, inviting them to decipher the enigmatic interconnections between language, form, and space.In this project, I pay homage to the legacy of Swiss contemporary art while charting my artistic trajectory.
Through a delicate balance of textual introspection and minimal visual language, I aspire to contribute to the ongoing discourse within contemporary art, inviting viewers to ponder the intricate relationship between the written word and the expressive power of painting.
