In these fast moving times, the visual arts – deriving their creative potential from mind and soul – are an enormously important medium and should rise above trends and commerce, because especially through the language of the image it is possible to enrich society in different ways. The American playwright Arthur Miller has said it best: “Art can't change people but it can exert pressure on them to look at life with different eyes, to recognize their own moral problems.” I for one see my artistic existence as a sort of creative journey with many stops to experience wonderful things. And who knows where this journey will take me. Torsten Gebhardt
