"i gave this image, mounted on white in a honey-coloured box frame, as a christmas present to my partner. i had been working on the image in spare moments one weekend in la serena. to my tastes it was too complex and crowded, but pauli noticed it on the screen and argued that it deserved to be kept. printed and mounted, it looks surprisingly good - intense and vibrant."
(From the artist's website, June 20, 2004)
"I should start by confessing that I chose the title of this image after it was made, and with little thought - it was nothing more than the flippant dismissal of a work that I found too intense, but which my partner selected for her office wall. In my experience, migraines are not bright circles. They do not look like anything - or rather, they look like nothing, because the central field of my vision disappears (which is frustrating, since I can no longer type accurately). Maybe it would inspire a greater artist, but generating images of nothing is too difficult for me. So I am left with coloured dots."
