"What is most striking about Pillhofer's art is the balance. He says that's because the figures are developed from a nucleus, a center, and we can only agree when he says his works are lyricism, lyricism in the sense of an act of compression."
Quote. Alfred Schmeller, preface in leaflet for the exhibition "Josef Pillhofer", Galerie auf der Stubenbastei, Vienna 1970.
