Jean Christophe Amman wrote about this artist in 1975: "Your works, Falco (generally referred to as jewellery) are made with intuition and cool obsession with the body, and more so for the mentality of the body, and your knowledge of it.... One doesn't wear your works without consequence! They are energetic locations occupying an area of tension between their own meaning and the meaning with which we imbue them" (cat. Finale - Das Ende der freien Kunst in Köln, Verein der Kölner Werkschulen e.V., Joseph Haubrich Halle Cologne 1992, p. 74).
