“Paintings and drawings of Klaus Busch are an invitation to take a walk with the eyes. The viewer easily forgets that he is viewing a flat surface, because the elaboration of the plastic qualities of things and their inclusion in the perspective are two major means that Klaus Busch uses to stage his fantasy world. The paintings contain a melancholy, but not without confidence. Well-known and familiar motives are mixed with unreal, but these are drawn as if they were really to grip in the tangible space. In this extraordinary world time is visible because everything takes time and must be experienced. It takes a second look " (Peter Glotz)
