Catalogue Note

“I paint. Suddenly, I discover a colour that excites me. I begin to get interested in this and forget my idea. In the end, the picture is different from what I imagined…. I have to put it in its place. A perpetual battle” (Asger Jorn cited in: Guy Atkins and Troels Andersen, Revised Supplement to the Oeuvre Catalogue of his paintings from 1930 to 1973, Denmark 2006, p. 16).
