Lot Essay

'I only stop when both colour and light match. I cannot escape from colour, it is my fate and nature - my eyes must have been dazzled forever. The impact between two colours creates light, but whether it be true or false, this "theory" does make me paint'.

(From the artist's notebook, May 1982; translated from French).
