    I like to let the idea come about as I let the paint flow freely on the support. During this process there is a fluctuation between order and chaos which makes the initial idea mutate or metamorphose into its final state. At first, I allow myself to be lead by instinct and I alternate between painting and washing until I find a structure that pleases me. As of this moment the work stops mutating and becomes more reflexive and meticulous until I consider it finished. I work simultaneously on various pieces. In many cases I conceive them as independent pieces even though throughout the process many of them become grouped into diptychs and triptychs. Thus, it could be said that both the composition and the narrative emerge randomly. To a certain degree, they are accidental. I am greatly interested in the concept of the accidental in painting because an accident is unrepeatable. No matter how much you try to reproduce the sequence of colors and the actions that brought you to a specific result, the next time will be different. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that it will have a good result and you can ruin whole works or even end up completely destroying them. I accept this risk. I don't care if it turns out poorly and I cannot go back. I think that this risk is the most interesting part of the whole process. Jesús Galiana – Yissus Madrid, January, 2016. Read Less
