Catalogue Note

"I was influenced by the cities you see on the hills. Then I became interested in the gardens, the formal gardens there. They were all around us where we lived in Rome up on the Gianiculum. And these are just some fantasies I did, a whole series of things influenced by the gardens, the way they cut them in various shapes...To me they represent so much...This actually makes me think of where we lived and what I saw out the window and so on. Even though it didn't look literally like that, of course."
