“A few months after our relationship began, and the moment we stopped travelling and settled down for a season in Basel, I began creating my “Dialogues”, original books with paintings and texts based on episodes in our life which seemed to me especially significant. Making these works which have remained as originals was also a way of being with the beloved, even we were apart, enabling a kind of total immersion.”
