    ‘The paintings, which appear so cheerful at first glance, lead the viewer to believe in a perfect world. I reinforce the superficial idyll and at the same time reveal its flip side by blowing-up the images to a monumental scale. The alpine landscape is a cliché. The critical and political quality of the work stands in direct contrast to their harmless appearance. The children’s pursuits are not always as innocent as they first appear and there are clear references to the adult world. In ‘Bavarian Beauty’ the boy is paying the girl but why and what for is not clear.’ –Christopher Winter
