About the artist
"Helga Hornungs technique is to mix pulverised pigments with acrylic medium and apply this in many layers to the canvas. In this way her paintings come to possess an intense luminosity as well as enamel-like surfaces. Deep, rich blues and brilliant yellows are her most important colours and yet despite the colour displays and the cheerfulness of her works, it is the suffering caused by man's destruction of natural environments that is the driving force behind her artistic endeavours. "I paint in order to compensate an inner sadness and to show myself and perhaps others that human beings and nature only have a future if reconciled." Sueddeutsche Zeitung, April 1995.
"...People and animals are Helga Hornungs preferred subjects that she presents in the simplest possible way. At first glance they carry you into a world of feelings which appeals to grown ups and children equally .... Some pictures were created for Helga Hornungs's picture books about little Lalu - a lonely child that meets a Moon prince. As a result gains the ability to discover nature and make freinds. What is special about the book is that in addition to the normal text it contains symbols - Bliss Symbols - which can be understood by the mentally handicapped .... " Solinger Tagblatt, March 2000
