The material I have been working on since 1993 is galvanised metal. As far as I know no other artists are working on this kind of metal. The reason is that its not possible to paint on the surface, because it´s too fat and glossy. But to use acid make the difference. The acid change the surface and I can use the two together. And I can paint on the acid surface. In the example with the Tower of Babel you can see the same detail of a painting where the metal  reflecting the light, but in another angle it will be the opposite where the former light parts now becoming dark. This change when you move in the room interest me a lot. In the second example from the same painting you can see how the metal reflect a yellow wall and turns into golden stairs.
