"Things that lurk unseen beneath the surface appeal to Dittloff. He wants to convey moods, instead of trying to be recognizable. He wants to take the viewer on a journey through his subjective imagery.
Dittloff manages to create expressive, inspiring, and often secretive pictures that shape new relationships and provoke uncustomary interpretations.
In this sense, he can be best described as modern impressionist, who has developed over the many years in which he has worked as a visual artist his very own visual language." - Prof. Bernhard Schwichtenberg
From the cycle 'The Nature' - Impression 1 (left), - Impression 2 (right)
#1 - from the cycle Polish Impressions (left), The Girls - This is not Lebanon (right)
"Johannes J. Dittloff does not conceive his work as a realistic representation or even illustration of real things. Just as little he intends to pictorially formulate visions or even solutions. Dittloff understands his work as pictographic interpretations or visual equivalent of our present existence." - Dr. Thorsten Rodiek / Museum Director, Kunsthalle St. Annen, Lübeck

"My feelings shall be converted into an aesthetic experience and perfected with other media. In my work-cycles, I try each time "to individually visually coin" what moves me. This means - I always reinvent myself. Time is too precious to repeat oneself." - Joh. J. Dittloff
