Reinhold Wlotzka likes to dress up, dance, sing, or play his harmonica, especially at Christmas or during carnival on the speaker's platform.
In his art therapy, he sketches line drawings, mostly with felt-tip, sometimes with colours. He combines people and things from everyday life in such a way as to make the viewer take notice. He makes caricatures of the people around him. Above all, he repeatedly puts himself in different roles in the middle of the ambiguous events, writing his name alongside. The figures in his men's world consist of circles, triangles and rectangles. His roles are academic, such as priest or doctor, adventurous, like a sailor or horserider. His gender role also appears in the picture, mostly hidden in a symbol. Reinhold Wlotzka draws picture stories from the carnival and masquerade of life.
The procession goes past, a different hat on every head, each higher than the one before, until the prince is there, a triangular composition including the downward sloping writing: "Reinhold Wlosokka Wlotzka Wlotzka". From below, as if out of the subconscious, new, mostly animal beings follow. A mysterious world. But the artist has managed to save himself on the kayak, rowing light-handedly between sea and clouds.
