The blue of the veil and the panorama; the haze lying over the fields is like a dividing line between heaven and earth, between reality and imagination. The blue whispers, the blue heals, it is a vacuum, and yet touchable. Marc Mulders

In the media:
'Again, it is packed full at Park. Actually it is impossible to photograph the painted glass by curator Marc Mulders. As with the work of Olphaert den Otter, so definitely go look for yourself. Niels Broszat as I did not know him. Very well.'
