Hannelore Baron said of her work: "Technically, my collages are made of rice paper and/or cloth that have been drawn on with etching or India ink and at times contain printed images or areas of patterned cloth. Accidents are incorporated and appreciated, in the form of spots, creases or torn areas. The overall impression must be that of a spontaneous but preserved and cared-for work. The thoughts and feelings that underlie the collages are those of concern with the social issues and problems of the century, as well as the precariousness of existence at any time.
...I can only add that I have always worked only for my own satisfaction and if the work is shown and accepted it is a wonder and coincidence to me because it was never intended for that."
