Presentation

The process dictates the conditions for Westman's work, color and light in a movement on the canvas lying on the floor. Colors spread in  thin shocks in conjunction with swollen parts on smooth pastel surfaces  . She paints in oil with scrapers, rags and brushes. The starting shot for the process is the pictures, her models, which are scattered throughout the room. In the end, she can paint over everything, scrape it out again while the paint is wet, crumple it up and nail it to the wall. The sculptural thinking is integrated into Westman's painting and sometimes she has to go beyond the framework of the flat surface the surface forms and shape it like a sculpture to move forward.
