The grid is a negative, Artist Interview, Michiel Ceuler
The whole idea of painting I find quite absurd, I like painting a lot, but I am also quite skeptical towards it at the same time. I don’t think paint, as a medium on its own is like the most prestigious medium there is, I think painting these days is really hard because you have the history of it. But I don’t think you should feel guilty because of that because a lot of different mediums actually refer always to painting. I know I don’t want to feel guilty with it, so maybe there is a subconscious thing to perhaps laugh it away and to not take it too seriously. I don’t want to sound to cynical on that level, but I don’t really believe in it.
