Black enamel

Black Enamel is a synthetic industrial pigment, which dries in about ten minutes.

The artist completely covers smooth boards painted in white with Black Enamel, and before it dries he intervenes quickly by partly removing it, using gestures, signs, marks, imprints as well as a large range of cut-outs and shapes.

Since 1974 he has explored the relationship between Black Enamel and black itself in different states of opaqueness and brilliancy, as well as its interaction with white, colour, gold, silver, lacquer and mirrors.

Many of the experiments made with Black Enamel are not controlled by the artistís hand, or include interventions which have unpredictable results.
