'In history, when gold leaf was applied to something it was always with the intention to create the impression that it was real gold. Old jewelery or baroque dishes were plated with either liquid gold or gold leaf and then by hand polished to a perfect surface. Thinking about gold leaf I think about Café Mozart or baroque items that are now stained and aged but which were made to be immaculate. Today when we use gold leaf we see the imperfections in it, the stain, which we like. I find this counterplay of how we see it now and how it was intended to be in the past very interesting and appealing.'
