PROVENANCE: Collection Prof. Dr. Martin Reiser, Zürich. (acquired at Art Basel in 1999).

This is how he always manages to overcome the dead spot in front of the empty image carrier (lead, panel or canvas), to cover the set task quick and with minimum effort, bringing the new creation soon somewhere near art, leaving it there for a while to check if it can stand its ground in the face of the high temperatures found there.
Johannes Gachnang, quote after ex. cat.: Günther Förg, Galerie Fahnemann February 6, 1995 p.1
