Concrete motifs, like birds, wind mills, sheep, and even cars, separate and create a balance between the two realms in which the work operates: complete abstraction and concrete representation. These artifacts are symbols of the transient and the temporal – fractions of time in the fabric of timelessness; they set the stage from which we can begin to perceive time as a dimension. In conclusion, what one can see in Mädler's photographs is the process of compressing and stretching time, a balance between a moment in time and its persistence.
