Surprise




CATALOGUE TEXT
Pencil and brush fly across the paper like the rapid and bright thoughts of nearly four-year-old Alice. Watercolour splotches blossom, snaky lines and friendly drawn figures turn the girl’s interior world inside out. Usually with the optimism of a child, occasionally with sadness, the girl discusses her kidney operation with her mother, asking very deliberately when she will get her kidney back without the disease.

André Eckardt
