Arvid Boecker -The characteristics of the work by Arvid Boecker are a sophisticated, serial operation in a rather informal, intuitive order of colors. In the tedious process of thinly applied layers of oil paints and the sensitive treatment of the surfaces Boecker generates on his paintings sensitive textures of great haptic quality.It is an art that not only requires a lot of time in the development process but also slows the viewer down and invites him to engage in meditative thoughts and stimulates play.

Jai Llewellyn - For me painting is a very physical activity, I need to feel a physicalconnection with the canvas, the paint and colour to create anemotional attachment. The painting needs to be beaten into shape tobecome mine, an extension of my physical being, before any kind of feeling is present. Everything needs to happen in the painting, I don’t rehearse or plan, I want my mistakes and workings to all bepresent on the canvas. When a painting is finished, a part of me has left.
