Fruit and Mammals by Denis Korkh

There is nothing that could unite Fruit And Mammals together except their squareness; 3 x 3 feet each, spaced 3 feet apart, and that I made them in sequence. And that I made them. Each painting is a stray thought (with layers and layers of more thoughts underneath) and the layers are no more related than the five paintings are between each other. I start by making the canvas as ugly as possible: the worst colours, awful–seriously awful– lines and shapes. I make the grossest compositions until I reach a point where, no exaggeration, it is hard to bear to look at them; I truly cringe inside. Each painting went through this between two and six times before I let it become finished. ~Denis Korkh
