Catalogue Note

"I want nothing but to get to the color. I put the colors on, lay them in and try to gain a color this way. I use really diverse combinations. That keeps it open. There is no color I don't work with, so there is no pat system. Along the way, you can get to really beautiful paintings that you never had in mind."
