Perfection of execution has no role here and the painting is broken down to pure gesture. Large format paintings which in height and width follow and often exceed the average height of a person, when viewed consume and draw the viewer into a field of contemplation. It is apparent that the size of the canvas is something that dominates and as such also suggests a determination of the artist to completely control the surface regardless of the challenges that come with it.

It is as though only by being consumed with the painting and its presence, and trying to relate with it through a bodily/physical relation, is it possible to comprehend and experience it fully.
