Over the last few years, I have dealt with painting under self-imposed guidelines; I work exclusively with individual brush strokes, with ink, mostly on paper, applying a limited repertoire of forms and elements. The latter changes from time to time; some forms are added, some are reshaped, merged and others I have completely eliminated. During this process, I have constantly questioned my own perception of my work progress, examining the limits and limitations I encounter with regard to form, innovation, and the medium ink.
