Hintz's new works explore the relationship between form, colour and the painting process. The artist has found interesting shapes in surfboards and sails, shields and kites, and other everyday objects, and created his own interpretation of these on custom-built stretchers. Some compositions hint at the original use and structure of the objects, the mood and character of the form leading the painting itself. One could read the works both as painted objects or sculpted paintings. They exist in and communicate strongly with the surrounding space.
