Michel Demetria Tsouris

“I am interested in a process of picture making that encourages unconscious imagery to emerge from the canvas. The surface quality of the paintings is important to me. I have been working with tar, wax and oil for many years, to create a rich and textured surface that is both mysterious and revealing. I prefer to work on a series of canvases, to experiment both with process and form, content and subject, until patterns begin to emerge. I begin to understand the connection between the motifs that arrive on the canvases, only after the work is completed. I try to remain intellectually removed from the work when I am in the earliest stages of its development.”
