“The prevailing mood, the basic noise, the sound of my entire work deals with the shortcomings of our existence, with the irresolvable conflicts with ourselves, and with the “lovely failure” they entail. This return of the ever-same under constantly changing conditions inspires me to make sure of the world and of myself, through the poetical reflex and in ever new images. World as imagination. Images of the invisible. It is always also a conceptual and artistic re-examination of traditional ideas and visual concepts, though. Mixed in with this at times melancholy view, as a fragrance, are humour and irony.”

Jürgen Klauke, 2017
