Barbara Diethelms artistic attitude is inspired and formed by

the eastern tradition and aesthetic of beauty, simplicity and contemplative presence. Her work repeatedly encircles various cultural contexts revealing the interconnecting elements and streams of the human and the principles of life. 

 „To name Diethelm's language, we must say that it's necessary to even pass through her concrete use of color and form. When we have sensed her eloquence here, we move on - depth after depth.

Connected to, but simultaneously beyond the structures of analysis, we emerge past all the linear interpretations. Another reality reveals itself: We arrive to discover origins and changes - the Great Spirit of nature.“
