Catalogue Note

"My father said that if I wanted to be an artist, I'd have to find my own style. That was the hardest thing of all for me. Finding my own style, I got very stuck until I suddenly realized that having no style is also a style, so that's what I did. That set me free. Don't worry about style but about what you want to say.”
