“At one point I had to set myself restrictions because I felt I was going mad. So I limited or restricted my ideas to basic classical themes, which are man (human beings), animals, and a little bit of landscape. It sounds very boring, but I found that with these three subjects all the madness of the world can be explained.” – Martin Eder
