Catalogue Note

"To me, a painting has to be done quickly to be able to show its process, to be clear, without tricks. I don’t like the mess of painting; it has to be done most of the time in one go – otherwise I get bored. Ironically, working out the process and figuring out all the preparations for a painting take longer than the actual act itself.”
