But what I find most impressive in this entire process is the fact that Rainier Boidin continuously asks himself about the employed medium’s ‘raison d’être’. He does so by joining elements from the hemispheres of water colors and oils; by leaning towards Chinese and Japanese calligraphic techniques, which allow him to operate zen elements and utilize Indian ink’s unmatched precision. Whatever combinations he puts to the fore, you will always be amazed that a drawing can have the same substantiality as a landscape painting or a portrait.
