Artwork note:

‘Squatters’ is an abstract speed image featuring a building, where the inhabitants have their laundry hanging from the balconies, which the artist transforms into trajectories of color and light.

It is an extreme rough and tough painting from which even the objects in motion have disappeared. Matter has been dematerialized and its place taken by a rolling sequence of abstract vortices and a carefully regimented flight of fast moving points, causing the whole ensemble to pass swiftly from left to right, swooping and gliding through an abstract space.
