The wall of the world

Wall abstract painting

It is about reaching the wall with your painting – nothing else. The wall of the world. What you paint is almost irrelevant – it is all about bringing the painting the furthest way possible. The canvas must be located as far as possible, on the very horizon, at the limits of comprehension. These are the walls of the world, and you are there to work on them like a worker, to touch their surface, to patch up the holes, to polish the unevenness; the fact itself that the painting is so distant, and still you have managed to reach it – will deliver a shocking picture. I always my panel or my canvas at the very end, on the border as distant as my comprehension can reach. On the border of the world. /Piotr Potworowski
