Lot Essay

‘Gray is the great potency of all colours. It’s obviously not compared to what people have tried to make it out to be, the colour of nothing, the big zero or something stupid like that. No, it is the destination of color, like gold, flesh and silver are destinations of colour, and all of these together, they combine and preserve color in order to let it really shine’ (A. Butzer, quoted in J. Newsom ‘Focus Germany, Interview with Andre Butzer and John Newsom’ in Flash Art, Issue 280, October 2011, reproduced at http://www.maxhetzler.com/files/3314/2309/1989/Press_Butzer_ October2011_Flash_Art.pdf
