Original text:

van wat krom,
kapot is.
om dit te proberen recht te trekken,
te laten groeien,
en kleur te geven.
Dat is het werk van
En dat is een kunstwerk op zichzelf.


To see
what is wrong,
The EFFORTS to try to straighten this,
to have it grow,
and to give it color,
That is the work of
Koen Van Rompay.
And that is art by itself.
