"The nail fields, which the artist continues to make, appear a lot more dynamic and more eventful than ealier ones. […] These moved fields are made of heavier materials while the appear with a much lighter aesthetic and count among the most virtuoso accomplishments that Uecker attained in context of his operating principle." Dieter Honisch, Günther Uecker, Stuttgart 1983, p. 93.
