Catalogue Note

The reason I take a lot of photographs is to make up for the fact that one photograph really doesn't give me all the information I need. Also, the camera is like one eye and it really deals only with values. And painting is trickery, because you can make people respond by guiding their eyes around the picture. The photograph doesn't do that because a camera doesn't have ideas. It can only reproduce, so you have to use a lot of trickery.
