Bertrand, Anne. "Forest Sentinel",
in: Kunsträume in Norden, Galerie Asbaek/Kulturabteilung Bayer, 2002/2003
By chance I have seen him. I wandered below bright crowns of tall pines with slender trunks, crooked or straight; over some thick scrub, rustling foliage, a floor of fine grass, light green. In passing I saw him suddenly on the right-hand side, vertical, breaking through from below the forest roof with a warmer colour, red, against the almost white sky. The next time, I took a path that led me to a different place; he towered up again among the trees, but in a setting that made him immediately recognizable. From this point of view as opposed to the former one frontal, object at the centre other questions arise the relationship between the details and the whole is now more disquieting, which is why I adopt it willingly. Mysterious axis, collage or illusion, object of amazement and doubt what did I really see?
