About Matter Painting

I completely forget the world around me when I’m doing some matter painting in my studio. A total sense of calm falls over me. I melt together with the canvas and the materials that go through my fingers. I work completely on my intuitions and feelings, and therefore an important piece of my soul touches the canvas. My heart comes out, filled with passion and love, I have total respect for the canvas and the materials I work with.

I notice that I really love painting with my hands, so I’m often totally covered in paint and other materials. Experimenting with various materials brings me in a special state of consciousness. Making an artwork brings me very close to my inner me; free, feminine, cheerful, excited and happy, just like a child! That is what I want to share with you, so I can make the world shine just a little more.

Abstract Matter Paintings

Used materials in Matter Painting

I only use quality materials.
For coloring the artwork I use Amsterdam Experts Acrylics and Inks, Fluids and High Flow Acrylics from Golden, and other various professional brands. The paint is highly pigmented and the colors are bright and deep and they will last. Besides acrylics I also use pigments, metallic, powders and so on, all from the known professional brands and way to much to mention here in a list.
I also use various mediums (thinners, thickers, gels) of professional brands like Golden and Liquitex.
And I like to work with Powertex and the family of various materials by Powertex like Easy3DFlex, Stone-Art, Easy Structure, 3D Sand and Balls, and Powerwax.
The canvasses I use are all stretched on a quality stretcher. The panels (canvas boards) I use are from a fine quality, not the cheap ones. I also use wooden Ampersand Boards.
I always paint the sides of a stretched canvas or boards, sometimes in one color, other times in the colors of the painting. You do not need to frame the artwork, but framing in a cradled frame will give the painting a whole new dimension.
I varnish all my artwork for protection and perhaps for a little shine. Some of my artwork is varnished in a Matt finish.
