BACK TO FRONT Series is a collection of works through which I question our accepted way of viewing traditional canvas. When we go to galleries to look at paintings or other wall-based objects, our eyes are most of the times met by only the 'front' of the paintings. I have always been wondering about the hidden side, the 'back' of it. This is why I dress the canvas stretcher the wrong way round - back to front and expose what is normally hidden. I like exploring what is not visible at the first sight.

BACK TO FRONT Series consists of wall based objects which appear as back to from canvases. The main inspiration for the abstract colour field paintings comes from Josef Albers's studies of colour and his book Interaction of Color.

BACK TO FRONT Series: 4th of April, 2021

BACK TO FRONT series - today I am using the same colours as yesterday although I feel like the yellow needs to dominate. When it comes to making tools, I use whatever is available. I used my sleeve to correct some imperfections which I guess is not my traditional tool.

2nd of April, 2021 - this work is part of my Back to Front Series and I really enjoy exploring the interaction of colours.  I love Josef Albers Homages to the Squares paintings and this is my response in a 3D form.

2nd of April, 2021

'Back to Front' series is my response to the accepted way of viewing traditional canvas. Why is the back hidden from the viewer and what is the front or the back of this wall based object? Is the front more important than the back or does the back have more to say than the front?
