I paint because I think, because I don’t want my overactive imagination to be underutilized, because the world in my head is better than the one I’m stuck in, because laughing is pivotal to a satisfying life, because it’s really hard, because it’s really easy, because I want to tell stories in one moment, because I want to do things that are impossible, because I am a painter.

“What does a museum look like behind the scenes? How are exhibits stored when they are not on display?
The focus of this study is not on the exhibition spaces of the museum, but on the space behind the scenes, particularly depots, cellars, and storage rooms assigned to individual departments which are generally not accessible to the public.
These spaces are used for the storage of countless exhibits belonging to various collections, sorted following a rigidly scientific classification system, but also taking into account the limited storage space available.”
Doggy is a rather difficult to read (but highly amusing) font-family rendering words as dogs through the OpenType ligature feature. Depending on the length of a word the dog respectively gets longer or shorter. One letter words result in a sitting dog.
