Love Colour Rage Satisfaction

I take a big piece of wood and cut it with my saw into a raw form.
The decision where to cut comes quickly, intuitive, as precise as it can be and as incidental as possible.
This was the first step, now I follow the feeling, a feeling that seems like an ancient knowlege of my ancestors.
Pieces of wood float in buckets of coloured water, soak in the dye, my personal driftwood.
The process has started, i try not to interrupt the constant flow of action and reaction.
I remember the five elements of a pentagon star, water, wood, fire, earth, metal.
I use my ability to transform and put my energy into materiality.
It is a big experiment and a besotted search for the right composition.
There are moments of madness, moments of relief, moments of happiness and love, it´s all in there.
