"Höller´s love of the clear rules and parameters of mathematics as well as ist possibility to depict reality via abstract systems largely define her artistic thinking. Barbara Höller´s creation lies in constructing a system, with a large part of her creative process happening in her head. She puzzles out rules, determines parameters, rethinks, ponders and polishes. Only when the system in her head is perfect (as possible), is it realised." (Clara Kaufmann 2016)
