"I can't distinguish myself from the world of pictures when I paint a picture. Someone goes on a mountain hike and then comes home and paints the hiking experience. They produce an artifact from everything gathered in the brain. My hike does not take me into nature, but to the entire cultural history of the picture, through the supermarket, to motorway stops, through the worst dives, through cesspits, through shopping malls, through teenage magazines, through all the rubbish eye and ear have to put up with every day. This is where my works come from. They are travelogs." Martin Eder, quote from: Monopol. Magazin für Kunst und Leben, January 2013, p. 48.
