“Baruchello is first and foremost an artist – a creator of happenings and events, but above all a painter of large canvases covered in minute details. He also made assemblages and other books and cultivated sugar beet. How to Imagine is about a farm called Agricola Cornelia, a creation of Baruchello’s, to which he moved in 1972, and on which he cultivated, painted, meditated – and talked” (Hall, 1984).
