about.

Birds sing, well or badly.
I sing badly.
The mute duck falls silent.
Boxes of colours and cards that aren’t mine scream.
The tape that binds them pops after a year.
Monochromatic backgrounds and golden stripes and pastels.
What a miracle!

For years, everything that he had once locked up in large cardboard boxes comes out. With the discipline of an amanuensis he spreads colours over preprepared paper (almost always small in size): striped and monochromatic areas emerge. He overlays the latter in groups of three, thus setting the stripes free. He doesn’t always show the painted face – it isn’t always painted; often it is just different pieces of paper of different textures laid one on top of the other. At other times he finds pieces that have already been painted, in grey, blue, white, or very occasionally, black. He calls them Madonnas. He finishes off the rolled paper with pastels, gold leaf and watercolours, then rolls them up again; only a single flap remains visible. It reminds one of a study for a fresco in which the Virgin, intimidated by the angel’s annunciation, shelters behind a column.
