"Painting is positioned through masses on a canvas. I bought a material normally used by masons – a ground black pigment that dries slowly, in depth, over the span of years, which meant that I was always working on six or eight paintings at a time. Starting from a white background, I put clumps of paint on the canvas using a flexible and rounded blade, or, sometimes, a simple wooden stick, "raising" them up from the bottom to the top of the canvas, covering the lighter colours underneath with this black pigment. I could tell immediately whether it was successful or a failure, in which case, there was no way of correcting it."
