    “Georg Herold once summed up: ‘My choice of materials is not subject to any conscious aesthetic criteria. The materials must merely be able to absorb and transport my ideas. I do not use materials that speak their own language as a matter of principle. That’s why I look for raw, dumb materials that don’t pose any questions.” (G. HEROLD,quoted in http:/www.gerhardsengerner.com/Artists/gh_works13.htm, [accessed 9th September 2016])
