„I see myself as a journalist, describing life in colors and shapes instead of words. Both, the owerwhelming beauty of existence and it’s cruel dark sides – the whole range of being.“

„Katrin Alvarez’ paintings do not try to explain, educate or teach,  “German  psychiatrist  Dr.  Gosciniak  stated  in  an essay, „neither do they carry a mission. They do however embed themselves deeply in anyone who gets attracted to them. They are like a stone cast into a lake. The ripples felt by the individual may expand the horizon of feelings and dreams, clearing memories from debris, thus opening a new way to find one’s deeper and inner self.“
