Friction 

2019

Oil paint and graphite on paper

61 x 45 cm each


Friction attempts to find the physical form of the abstract concept of friction. It traces the process of embodiment of this concept by way of giving an impression of the feelings that arise. The body, in such process, becomes a topography to explore and inhabit, and the painting the document of such process.
