The series “Flow” (2013) juxtaposes paint with mirror and glass.

The title refers to the flow of the paint, spread by the artist and fixed by the mechanical action of placing a sheet of glass over the colours. The process prevents any reworking and fixes the material by stopping its movement. The abstract pieces in the Flow series involve the spectator and the environment through their mirrored finishes.
