Catalogue Note

"Drawing is a concentration on an essential activity and the credibility of the statement is totally in your hands. It’s the most direct, conscious space in which I work. I can observe my process from beginning to end, and at times sustain a continuous concentration…It’s one of the few conditions in which I can understand the source of my work.”
