  • Catalogue Essay

    "I see many, many layers of representation worked one upon another. When an image is already very complex to begin with, adding to it makes it harder to read and a little bit slower to interpret. So I like images like that–slow images. I’m a slow visual artist. So I think I’m an artist of the nineteenth century."

    Vik Muniz
