"When I was about to pour the boiling water into the sink, something made me stop, realising it contained far to much pigment to treat as a waste product. Instead I poured the boiling water on a canvas, deciding that it one day was going to be all covered with pigments from beetroot. Whenever I cooked, I poured. Within several layers of beetroot figures started to show and whenever they did, I highlighted them. The feeling was that every time I looked at that canvas, new figuresmade their appearance. The rest is history."
