"I decided on the beginning so that the »N-Paintings« are at the center of my whole œuvre, otherwise they’d be an end. Now they are the core. There is a way toward and a way away from there. The way away from there is another than the one leading there. Actually, somehow it is still the same and yet different. As it is the recurring one. Everything returns but nothing returns as the same. That’s the most difficult there is."
– André Butzer
