I dont have many choices in producing my work, so I take the photograph but the final result is always this [C-print mounted on] Plexiglas and its framed. On the one hand, I am happy that I found a solution that works very well for presentation; but on the other hand, I wish I could work with different materials. Im a bit jealous of painting, where you have surface and the smell of paint.
