What becomes visible in the new painting is not merely the surrounding space and the light in which the preceding painting was photographed, but also the impact of technology on the alteration of a picture. The images oscillate between dematerialization and materialization. There is a confrontation or a meeting between coded information and the haptic qualities of painting that in itself influences the image. The paintings carry their past in their present state.
