  • TLF 01.07.2007: "... 'Curtain Call' is a stillife made up of scraps of wood left over from my making carved toys and painted with artist's colors; the picture title aims at thanking the actors for their play - 'der Hervorruf [DaCapo]'..." [204]

    TLF 18.08.2007: "... The painting 'Curtain Call' represents my gratitude to many intuitions; the shapes and figures originate from toy production for my grandchildren, and the particular coloring means that these scraps have received their full right and are by no means 'second class citizens'..."* [204]
