„<…> I do not understand much of art. I cannot say what a good picture agrees – painting techniques, brushwork, to me all this is strange and I would not claim the interpretation or art-historical classification of a painting for myself. But frankly, I am interested in nothing of this really. <…> I do know that pictures, sentences and songs are able to open up the world by narrowing it. By overwhelming us observers, listeners and readers, by leading us to a point in our inside and there arousing a feeling that exceeds far beyond the moment <…>. They can arouse longing, mourning, fear, joy and melancholy. A picture which succeeds in this is a good picture, I think. Miriam Vlaming has painted several such pictures. Pictures which give shape to the longing, the melancholy. Melancholy has nothing to do with depression or misery, melancholy is a special form of luck. In Miriam Vlamings pictures this luck can be found.” Jörg Böckem
