Figures in Norbert Schwontkowski works possess a sort of infinity, they survive in a melancholy existence and reflect an everyday hostile world, in which there are transiting through: “Human existence, the life of the intellect, signifies an experience of this melancholy and the vital capacity to overcome it. We are, as it were, created ‘saddened’.” – Norbert Schwontkowski.
