The artist assembles images from magazines with found objects, scraps of paper or fragments from her accumulated picture archive. In this analog process, she collects, explores, and observes, placing her findings strikingly and minimalistically into a new context. Thus glossy pictures combined with landscape images become bizarre and irritating portraits that seem to reflect an inner world. A spiritual landscape, reflecting both the artist's poetic way of thinking as well as today's zeitgeist. In Tölkes pictures, there is always an element of calm, of pausing, which is initially unsettling, before unfolding its profound effect and finally eliciting a smile.

'I take everything out of context, collect, rearrange, put together loose parts, mixing materials and techniques.I create my own order out of the chaos of abunDANCE. I am a flaneur. That's why I live in the city mostly. I love to study people, faces, gestures, movements. Nature gives me horizon. Be naive in everything you do. The pictures are there - listen.' Mirjam Tölke, 2019
