The paintings explore the legacy of the monochrome. Here, the same painting can be entirely white and at another moment, entirely black. In between these two states, the viewer contemplates a slow but continuous process of material transformation; the propagation and dissipation from one colour into another colour, and vice versa. This paradox of being one and its opposite at the same time questions the tautology of the monochrome as an absolute state of pure colour.
