A young Englishman, 2015

  • Sira Zika / Fine Art / Enschede

‘When I paint, I begin with a rough plan, but I eventually let the picture come into existence while painting. Therefore, there are conscious decisions, though I also work intuitively and let luck and unexpected moments flow into the picture.

 

My graduation work is the series “A young Englishman, 2015”. The series shows the relationship between a figure and the space and how they slowly become one by abstracting the figure. This appearing and disappearing happens often in my images. A character, a place, a mood that partially reveals itself and partially remains hidden. Abstraction helps me examine my motives. Everything then comes together at a particular moment to form a whole: my actions, the notion, the paint, and the moment when what I’m painting emerges.’
