Studio

Here, the painting studio has been deterritorialized per se; all paintings are executed in a factory setting. The work can be done in any powder-coating paint factory in the world. Creation happens in a paint booth of approximately 100 square feet, under neon lights, in a loud and dusty environment. There are no sketches displayed, just an immediate immersion in the struggle of gestural painting. Utilizing metal and/or plastic brushes in one hand and a spray and an airgun in the other, the painter applies, or substract, the pigments onto the metal surface.

Though electrostatic paint is an ecological improvement from industrial liquid paint, it still remains a toxic environment. The painter is covered from head to toe, seeing through a visor and breathing from a respirator.
