In my “Legends” paintings I show all my colors present in my studio at the time of making. I give the colors a number as if in a legend, a caption. At the same time it is a narrative of all the colors. The colors form a story. I see all the colors separately and without shape and thereby make a new reality. I show all the colors I have, separately as purely and directly as possible. This means I can then mix into a new story. Colors are gained and colors are lost. I have made them at various times in my studio in New York and The Hague and also in Turin and South Korea. In each new place I have to make a Legend with the colors I have. I often give the “Legends” a weight in order to personalize the canvas and make it realistic. Something becomes reality when it is given weight.
