The soft poetry of Hans Reichel's abstract compositions unfolds through a balanced arrangement of line and color. Vibrations and sound correspond with one another, just like in a musical intermezzo. The deep friendship with Klee has left traces in Reichel's works, however, Klee's intellectually projected irony can not be found in Reichel's art. Reichel forms moods and impressions in colors and thus creates an overall optical effect, which, for its hovering poetry, evokes an upright feeling. Reichel's striking pictorial worlds reflect on dreams that bare a secret waiting to be revealed.
