"Turbulent" mainly consists in black, abstract, cage-like patterns painting of various sizes and shapes, all created with black spray paint, from a set point towards the borders of the canvas. Nozzles have been left on the work indicating its creation process. This simple action and combination, provides a new way of appreciating abstract painting.Compared to the complex action in the previous work, the painting technique here appears as much easier and simple. Both works are initiated by an 'action' and result in a certain form of painting, with purposes based on painting experiences. To a certain level, the act of exhibiting itself is more important than the paintings. The action process and the language of spray painting 'legitimate' each single work, however the exhibition doesn't emphasize on this aspect, on the contrary it purposely reduces it; paintings resemble wallpapers, as an exhibition installation.
