I now picked up bushes for the first time in many years. Simply reproducing the lines, crosses and circles that every photographer in the world uses to underline their choices was not enough.
I saw the possibility of inventing a new kind of art object by marrying organically, not arbitrarily, painting and photography. When I started painting the Contacts, it was all brush strokes and jubilation. The jubilation of painting recalled the celebration of taking the photo. For me, taking a photo was a celebration, was physical and gave me a super charge.
