"Metaphors and symbols are Baerbel Claus' language. She shows a cross-section of her work, which deals with the existential questions of humanity in all the years of her work. In a socially critical and compassionate manner, her sculptures and objects point out grievances or show religious themes in a vivid and simple representation. Access to Claus' works is usually only accessible at second glance. They have to be circumnavigated, their three-dimensionality is an essential part of their significance. Materiality is another important feature of Baerbel Claus' art. Their expressive works live from the variety of materials used, which are always in relation to the intention".
