„A sign is a crack which opens only on the face of another“.
„Das Zeichen ist ein Riss, der sich stets nur auf dem Gesicht eines anderen Zeichens öffnet.“
Roland Barthes, Das Reich der Zeichen. Frankfurt am Main 2014, S. 76

In contrast to the colourful, abstract works in indian ink and watercolours in many of her artworks, in her work with the steles it is humanity that is at the center of attention. The human race is depicted as a social being, with its relations and the absence of relations, moods and sometimes the two-faced Janus in us and our society. Many things are implied, nothing is overly aparent.
