Catalogue Note

"I like very much the qualities of lead—the surface, the heaviness. Some of the paintings were completely painted, and you only experience the lead at the edges; this gives the painting a very heavy feeling—it gives the color a different density and weight. I like to react on things; with the normal canvas you often have to kill the ground, give it something to react against. With the metals you already have something—its scratches, scrapes."
