Perfection - what does it mean to you? For me (as I think for many artists) life is a constant balance between the wish to make things perfectly like I had it in mind - and constantly having to face that it doesn't work, will never work that way.

This edition of 20 prints (all different, see the whole edition here) is the result of my thinking about perfection.- And they are called "imperfection" :-)
On the backside they all carry a handwritten quote by Salvador Dali: "Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it." - The quote is by Dali, it's written by me :-)

I have several explanations for why these prints stand for "imperfection", but I don't want to preempt you in finding your own meaning and interpretation.

The sheets of paper on which prints numbered 10-20 are printed is a little larger than A5, about 30cm x 21 cm, 15.5 x 21.5 cm, printed on reclaimed paper.
