We are hell

Michael Appelt analyzes relationships. The relation to the people he loves.

Relationships are ambivalent. On the one hand they mean closeness, confidence, security, happiness and home. On the other hand they are affected by the latent fear that everything is going to turn into the opposite. Origin of desperation, downfall, breakdown and loss.

In none of Michael Appelts works a definite story is being told, rather you feel a certain mood, which could tip over from one minute to the other – or not so.

Effectively it is an attempt to crystallize the inner mental processes out of the outer visible incidents.

“Say what you are. Not what you would like to be. Not what you have to be. Just say what you are. And what you are is good enough“ John Cassavetes
