On my new paintings text appears to complete the meaning carried by the other visual elements or to put it between quotation marks. The questions and problems related to the birth of a new painting  become visible on the canvas. On the painting called Mind map one can read to-do lists, reading lists, impressions reports or sentences which originally were planned on the other painting. Like a quote from The Mandarins: ‘it’s fantastic how many men there are on the surface of the Earth who aren’t Lewish.’
