Catalogue Note

"Normally with sculptures it is a matter of certain parts just being emphasized with paint. In a human representation, the cheeks are painted pink, not green. In my case the paint application is more or less independent of the place where it is applied, so to that extent it is not painted in the traditional sense. It is my own way of using paint."
