“An Homage to the Dot”

Very many of my paintings contain a dot. Some more than one, but usually just the one – the One.

The dot always comes first, placing itself seemingly as it desires. (Sometimes that’s all I do. It resonates by itself on the otherwise all-white expanse of canvas.) It is the dot that inspires all the painting to follow. It’s as if all else is a tribute to the dot, an homage. That little, but so powerful, star of pure intensity.

And it has a special significance for me: my mother’s nickname was Dot.
