The artist's work is generally characterised by a wide variety of materials and approaches, including printmaking, drawing, multiples, sculpture and land-art.

With unusual processes or basic material, he explores how to change artistic boundaries. This portfolio links not only to his first portfolio 'Notes' from 1986 but refers to other prints and sculptures. The small head of a dog in the second sheet links to 'Notes' as well as to a detail in 'El Maktoub Maktoub' (1990), but changes its meaning through the different context. The subtle use of blank space, often in stark contrast to black surfaces, or the well balanced creation of half-tone plates form a body, which makes this portfolio a typical and important statement of his work.
