  • Catalogue Essay

    "Surface and colours refer to things we relate to. I like the idea that kids as well as people who have nothing to do with art can also find their own access to my work. It’s as simple as standing and waiting to cross the road, when a truck drives by and you’re fascinated by the appearance of the hood. It’s easy." - Anselm Reyle
