Mr. Namgyel in 2006 painting "#254."
Usually I go through the process of destroying many times in order to get beyond my emotions, hopes and fears. Often the paintings I destroy repeatedly are the least contrived, raw and most provocative. They are often unrecognizable from one moment to the next – even the colors change. Because we paint with oil and turpentine the paint is easy to manipulate. The combination provides a freedom of expression because one can easily add, remove or scrape away any paint.
