Catalogue Note

I like words and titles to swallow themselves. They should sound like your neighbour who has poor language skills so that when he is speaking you fill the gaps for him because you are polite. You study his face like it was a pizza. You listen closely and you are lost, happy and fully informed.

I grew up with an almost forgotten language that I did not fully understand so I've never worried about mistakes and misunderstandings in what I write. Writing correctly is over-rated. In painting one has to give in to stupidity.
