“His motivation for the paintings is borne less by a transfigured love of plants than by a respectful detachment from the motif and a fascination that is rooted in the wealth of forms of plants. As imaginative and incredible as nature shows itself to us, the world of painting and drawing is just as wonderful and fascinating. In each picture lies the desire to capture all this for itself and the viewer, but it always succeeds only in capturing a moment.” (Martin Staufner)
