I was very amazed, when at a show, a visitor moaned that my snail shell paintings
would express such a negativity of death and destruction with all their holes and
opened parts. I never had thought of that!

Who ever has collected shells at the shore, knows, that the most are incomplete or
have little holes. And as a painter I loved the richness of forms caused by these
openings, especially showing the beauty of the spindle in their inner. To me these
shells had a more positive meaning like a shelter to crawl into and hide and feel
protected or at least like romantic ruins.

Together they can form a kind of settlement or be used as individual beings as in
“The Decision of Paris”.
