Before he even starts the painting on the front side of a plexiglas support, Paul already imagines erasing it. Once half-erased, he thinks in filling the voids and the wounds. He observes and reobserves the back of the plexiglass, then the front, recolores, tears off and works on the front again to magnify the back.
Paul’s approach is similar to Picasso’s that is well summarized by one of his quotes: “In my case a picture is a sum of destructions. I make a painting then I destroy it, but in the end nothing is lost: the red I removed on the one hand is somewhere else”.
