"Eerst is er de gebeurtenis, die plaats vind op een bepaalde lokatie en tijd. Die gebeurtenis kan klein zijn of van groot belang, maar voegt altijd iets toe aan de lokatie. Op een bepaalde manier krijgen die plaatsen iets gemeenschappelijks, sommige hebben een geheim dat uitgroeid tot een symbool.
Wanneer de gebeurtenis voorbij is, blijft alleen de plaats nog bestaan.
Wat ik nu wil, is dit latente beeld zichtbaar maken"

"Some of his works possess a sensitivity that ideally translates intangible thoughts and feelings into tangible forms and expressions. Endowed with imaginative power, Schilder succeeds in making the metaphysical a reality."

"First there is the event,
happening at a certain place at a certain time.
The event may be small or of great importance,
but certainly adds something to the location.

And somehow these places get something in common.
Some of them have a secret that becomes a symbol.
When the event is over only the place remains.
What I want is to make this latent image a visual statement."
