"The Patina Paintings, called Gebrauchsbilder in German [the term implies both that the canvases are consumer objects and that they fulfil a need] are created in the locations where they are hung. The primed image carriers are taken, without prior manipulation, to a selected location and remain exposed there for a period of time to be determined. They absorb and reproduce the specific patina of this location. This process of absorption can continue infinitely or be interrupted at some point. Duration, the name of the location, and size determine the painting and provide its title."
