...writing about the power of the gesture may seem futile, so obvious is its energy... the gesture here though is small in origin... the casual gesture of a absent-minded doodle...spirals upon spirals on a notepad... the piled up spirals seem to cancel each other out... beginning and end disappear... the energy of the movement seems to get tangled up in a chaos of lines...

...out of the 41 doodles 41 photographic reproductions come into being, each one 1 metre by 1 metre in size... the line of the pencil is about to dissolve into its parts... the gesturing dynamic of the spirals begins to develop into a personal work on the potency of 41 years of experiences and impressions...
