Catalogue Note

"It is no longer about a simple figuration. The line itself expresses the lion's force: the line itself - in itself, and not what it represents or what it shows - becomes an expression and a plastic sign loaded with emotion. This was something that was completely freed in me and gave me the courage to follow my own inclinations, my own unconscious will."
