1. Neutralise the motif so that you feel comfortable with it. This is best achieved with repetitive formations - the single picture disappears in an ocean of identical photographs. Choose the medium and color scale, and keep it in mind while working with your motif.

2. To be able to translate the picture into painting, you need to simplify the surfaces of the motif. This is done by: using the pixels of the image, secure where each field of colour has its beginning and end. To fasten the process, use digital tools.

3. Give the picture a physical form och get to know its surfaces with the help of your own body.

Dominikas practice is an exploration of how photos can be translated into painting and how digital technologies can help solve problems in painting. She tries to understand the balance between painting as method and painting as narrative.

By repeating a photograph through patterns and formations, it is neutralised. Instead of focusing on the motif, the painterly aspects can take over. Its forms are examined over and over again. Even though the picture becomes abstract, it feels more graspable than ever.
