STATEMENTThe access to the painting of PARI RAVAN is only at first glance unmistakably indicated. Her pictures tell stories. And certainly, the very consciously chosen titles offer a key to entering these stories. However, here the clearance of meaning begins to gradually disappear. This is because none of the stories is really told to the end in the pictures. Only the observer can do so. (Prof. Dr. U. H. Peters, retired chair for psychiatry Cologne (Germany)
