Text in exhibition catalogue:

Outside your house
in the middle of the night
while you are sleeping
an artist is making a painting of it

He paints it on the darkness
laying color upon the night’s surface

With fumbling brush movements
(that remind you of the subtle ripples
a fishing line makes in the ocean)
he tries to capture what’s hidden inside it
