Catalogue Note

"He's very aware of the fragility of the landscape. And the great cracking that you see on the surface of his work is intended to tell you that it all can be swept away by the deluge, by the flood, by the fall of man. And we all have to start again." 

Jackie Wullschlager, "Interview with Anselm Kiefer, ahead of his Royal Academy show," The Financial Times, 19 September 2014
