“Deep and powerful, personal, encoded, cryptic, ominous and ambient iconography and symbolism. Made public, shared, maybe even enforced and inflicted. Open to, allowing, encouraging and provoking interpretation and other engagement. Production and end-result as therapeutic action.
A constant state of cease-fire and false-security, both to the pleasant menace, but also the disturbing charm, which together are the magic. Adler’s exact means of production remain mostly undisclosed, joining forces with the power and beauty of the mystery and enigma”
From the essay ‘Monika K. Adler’ by Douglas Park, 2013
