Lot Essay

'When I was 13, I painted in an Impressionist manner, later it was more Expressionist - I went through the whole of art history... Then I was faced with the decision of either taking the path of stressing details, which would have taken me in the direction of Pop Art, or pursuing an abstracted representation of systems. This representation of systems is the result of abstraction, reduction and logic' - A. R. Penck
