Catalogue Note

"The Sites heighten the evocative power of the place portrayed… the presence of a human figure gives the place the necessary existence and vitality without which it might remain to the observer merely a network of incomprehensible planes and lines. The figures have the function of a catalyst that triggers the imagination" 

Jean Dubuffet
