"Martin Fengel has a benevolent gaze. He sinks down gently onto things, he strokes the edge of the table and rests briefly on the coloured board, he touches the strange egg carefully, then comes his gaze, and he puts it down again straight away. This gaze is benevolent because he leaves things as they are; this gaze is lovely because he is happy and astonished that these things even exist." Georg Diez
