The last work I had done before I left the studio in 2012 was a striped work with only white and grey. It was without pigment, I only used coarse and fine filler. Now I decided to only use this as a material for a while. I also found the stripes to be a dead end and needed a new way to work. I didn't wanted to go back to use photographs and overhead projections. So I started to work with text.
