The car itself merely served as a surface onto which his own imagination could be projected, without representing a formal restraint. The artist himself supplied this interpretation of the work: "In painting the BMW 635 CSi, I gave expression to various experiences, fears, desires and implorations, but also to free aesthetic artistic creativity. I call this car 'Firefox on Harehunt'. It represents a hare racing across a motorway at night and leaping over a burning car - the primeval fear and bold dream of surmounting a dimension in which we live."
