I don't seem to commit myself to nature. Yet, appearances are deceptive. I do commit to nature, however, not to its forms but to mine, it is not about showing what there is, but to reveal what is also there, for there is far more visible than we can see and hear and there is far more than just us. Fritz Winter (quote after Helga Gausling, ex. cat. Fritz Winter. Zum 80. Geburtstag, 1985, p. 5)
