Katarina Hybenova interviews painter Rob de Oude about his work and process.
De Oude remarks: "The patterns [in my paintings] are completely random. That's a funny thing. I work with many opposites, like the perfection of the line combined with the fact that I do it by hand. It seems very mechanical but actually the opposite is true. The decision-making within the painting is something that a lot of times I don’t know and many times I don't have a clue about where I’m going... My technique is very mechanical and repetitive in some ways, but the decision making is very random; the sense of color as well. A lot of times the color choices are based on what I’m seeing and how I’m responding to that."
