Catalogue Note

"By choosing locomotives and railway tracks as objects for his paintings he discloses longings and wishes... Minangkabau people are known for their tradition of... temporary migration... Irfan himself says that his works are about arrival and departure. There are dreams of leaving and dreams of waiting... [Train tracks] are predominantly carriers of wishes, hopes and expectations."

Anton Larenz cited in Exhibition Catalogue, Bejing, Odyssey, 2008
