KM discovers his alter ego in a box of private postcard-sized black-and-white photos from a flea market. The photos from a trip to France in the 1930s show a man and a woman. He calls them: No-Land – and reduces them to two iconic silhouettes. In KM’s paintings, the figure appears again and again. For Mr Noland allows KM to role-play. He is an ‘other self’, a stand-in: ‘I can park myself in the figure from time to time’.
