Marcus Amm

  • Markus Amm creates his boards by first applying layers of gesso, and sands down the uppermost layer to obtain a smooth surface onto which he then pours paint. Decisions are made about drying times, colors, how much to thin the paint, resulting in a rich but luminous surface of subtly gradated tones, where incidents are recorded and remain unaltered. His working process is long, and one that obliges him to remain attentive to the material. It is only in the drying phase that the « picture » begins to emerge, thus there is risk inherent in the process and presumably many false starts.
