HEGO created this artwork during stay-at-home orders in Germany. As he was really missing (live) exhibitions he attached the German words for “joy for art”, “experiment”, “colors” etc. to the layers at the top of the painting, though this work – as many other of his pieces - explores the aesthetics of decay - decay as a necessary condition for the emergence of something new.
