| ... One must have aptitude
in order to paint realistically. For this is sufficient talent not
only desired but necessary. Hannelore Winter's paintings demonstrate,
in addition to such talent, her own unique surrealistic visions.
Despite lack of understanding on the part of "abstract"
painters, Hannelore Winter continues to be steadfast in her commitment
to her work. It would be a pity if such talent remained unknown
... Hannelore Winter has a special eye for the effects of light
and shadow - exactly that, which lends a painting its sense of space
Uwe Grossu, Galerie am Theater, Nürnberg
... The oil paintings
of Hannelore Winter (Fürstenfeldbruck) are the most artistically
convincing: she paints small scenes in nearly photo-realistic style,
and in doing so she directs the observer's view towards objects
that evoke associations with personal situations or that awaken
the emotions. ...

... In terms of representational uniformity, Hannelore Winter's
imagery is non-conformist: there is the concrete "Kakteen",
a brilliantly painted still-life with a background in anthracite
tones; "Rauhbank" shines, externally illuminated, out
of a black background; the Italian no-parking sign rusts away, as
do three other technical gadgets, whose former function remains
uncertain for the art historian.
What I see in them, as an art historian, are pictures of transience
and of the decay of former function; images of aging and of falling
out of use. But somehow these are also pictures of ourselves. Shifted
images, as it were, that make something invisible in and about us,
... The artist, therefore, truly imposes a task upon us, through
which we may not only find answers, but ask questions as well: Was
wordplay the starting point for these paintings? Is technology witchcraft?
Does it replace human action? Can magic overcome reality?
But with her paintings, Hannelore Winter also questions the true
value of those things that we meet with day in and day out. Thus
she changes our way of seeing and draws attention to the details,
which without art, would remain hidden in all that we see. ...
