Catalogue Note

"That is the beauty of painting: it always has a dynamic of its own, which happens through accident. Let’s say I start with a metallic color, because it reminds me of some object I was completely crazy about. The color gives me something that I need, so to speak. I put that metallic color into the painting—and the moment I do that, something happens. Suddenly that color needs another color. I will run with the painting, like it’s a dog on a leash, chasing and almost falling behind it. That is also the space where I forget myself, where painting becomes something that I don’t control, neither emotionally nor intellectually."
