Every single time when I observe the work of Ursula and Dietmar Kirsch, I am overtaken by this feeling of being in another world, in a world of soft tones, a world that surrounds reality with a magic poetical coat that offers warmth and comfort, a world where people and animals act similarly, a world where dreaming is not only allowed but encouraged. Here everything proceeds quietly, almost gentle and cautious but without being faded or unclear. The truth of life is excessively exposed…
… The couple Kirsch has been given the great gift to be able to plan, dream and create together. Sculptures to understand and to hold. Wood that comes alive in your hands, carved figures that seem to be growing out of it. Your breath is taken away by the finely composed paintings where a pair of laughing, pensive or joyful staring eyes that seem to say: join us here, where there is also pain and joy, but more restrained, without hard contours and wrapped in a veil of dreams, always full of comfort. Let us move you so you can return to the world a richer person.
