Figures walk through icy landscapes, they seem not to be aware of the power of nature. Thus, many picture titles point to a mysterious event, to a threat that hides behind the vast landscapes. The figures turn their backs to the viewer, they are wanderers reading the landscape and their thoughts remain mysterious.

When you set off on a hike in a snow-white landscape, you are quickly surrounded by total silence and the absence of color. The absence of color is a symbol of empty space and empty space is one of the few constants in our lives. By stepping into an empty space, we have the illusion of escaping time. A solitary landscape has a tremendous impact on us, it is a place where we can learn about ourselves and renew ourselves.

In the solitary spaces of the snow-white mountains one exposes oneself to danger.

And there is a parallel to art: In a letter to Clara Rilke in 1909 Rainer Maria Rilke wrote: “The path to Art inevitably leads to loneliness and danger. Achieving something in the Art of Creating means always being in danger“.
