Looking at their work, you might stumble across questions such as: How much of it is reality? Is this a depiction of dreams, or is it simply an exaggeration of reality? But perhaps the answers to such questions are not necessarily crucial in order to grasp the full effect of the work.

Well, we know where we’re goin’
But we don’t know where we’ve been
And we know what we’re knowin’
But we can’t say what we’ve seen
And we’re not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is certain
Give us time to work it out“

– Talking Heads, Road To Nowhere

[…] You might imagine that when the two positions meet, an intense and mutually confrontational discourse might ensue. But because the effect of the works of is so different, a balance is formed that gives the works room to breathe. Both artists are Berliners of the same generation, who paint their reality without any indication of a proper context. And despite the differences in expression, the works are equally visually powerful.
