Directivist

 

"I consider myself a Directivist and I paint with deliberate intent.

The works are direct fluid movement that stem immediately from a source.

They can be linear or sculptural - concrete or random in composition.

I use minimal brushwork and the purist clean, clear paint. 

Done with no corrections and only over painting where it is intended.

Because it is exact as it is meant to be."

 

"I am the founder of Directivism in art."

Marta Baricsa
