Walter Menne has created forms that owe their existence to meditation and a sensitive set of instruments. In Menne's way of working it is important that the instrument allows rapid work without interruption and that the ink is applied in as many degrees of thickness and shapes as possible. They are not signs, rather rhythms and melodies. All his life he has worked equally in the medical and artistic fields.
