The show held in Galerie Beatrice Binoche in May 2008 was called Arrival. The title came from a painting below and shows a physical act of arrival. A clumsy skateboard certainly serves it purpose
The arriving object (a rock? a ball?) wasn't just a spontanious thing. It pops up in my 2007-08 sketch books quite often.
That was the first time in February 2008 it finally found its way to canvas.
Later, in March, when I was working on a self-portrait, it ended up in my hand.
Self portrait acrylic, canvas 172X186
from sketch book
