The second time I met the painter Bogdan Luca [this is Part one] I was in much better shape than the first time, yet the intriguing effect of his paintings was almost the same. These photos capture him putting the finishing touches one his latest painting.
I think we understand the world in a fragmentary way: little revelatory moments, physical or psychological experiences, knowledge in the form of images. It’s chaos really but we each have to put these bits together into some kind of overall picture that works for us on an individual level. Then we can have arguments when our overall pictures do not agree with each other. I want to make paintings about this. New images that cannot quite be resolved but which remind us that the boundaries between imagination, waking life and dreaming are blurry.
