Dekkenga works out the compositions of her paintings in Adobe Illustrator. After applying an impasto underpainting, she uses herself as printer to transfer the composition to the painting surface. The procedure produces a thing that levels action and stops movement, making it impossible to retrace a series of painterly moves.
