Water is the subject of Richard Klein-Hollerbach’s art. The most significant source of inspiration for him is water in its natural environment. He emphasises essential aspects of water in his works and makes water an experience for all the senses. He creates special constructions that make it possible for flowing water to create images of movement unique to water.

Close-up photos of direct encounters with water in nature, sometimes with a little influence from the artist, allow for unexpected glimpses into the mysterious world of water.
