"Heavy Metal Biedermeier

... the paintings of Krichbaum, who, not without irony, calls himself JFK, are genre pictures of a society committed to mercantilism, without such mercantilism being explicitly condemned. They are emotional states of lonely, sad people, which, interestingly, become most tangible in the group representations, in which each individual is very much by himself or herself, despite the seeming proximity, there is no togetherness, only coexistance"
