 “There is nothing more rewarding than to finish a work and to be able say that it captures that moment in time that was unique in the natural world and that onlookers will observe for the feeling or emotion of the work as well as its correctness.

The underlying purpose of creating has to do with why certain objects inspire attention in the first place, or how they might be used to express a concept.

It is all about thinking and feeling.

Hans Kappel DE

Through my work I wish to create appreciation for the preservation of nature and the environment. I would like to try to promote the conservation of our natural resources in times of fascination with virtual worlds which seem strangely alienated from nature and sterile to me. Real nature, however, is disappearing and, as I see it, often in small steps which go unnoticed.

David Kitler CA

We are often told to 'stop and smell the roses.' As a visual artist, David's work reminds us instead to stop and LOOK at the beauty that surrounds us. 'God is an amazing designer; the closer you look, the more there is to see.'
