"Having now met Peter Mandl on many occasions, my earlier mental image of this sculptor as an elderly, professorial character seems a little comic. Impressions of continuous change and renewal are more typical when meeting him, hut at the same time it is rare in contemporary art to meet such consistent, well thought out structure, a collaboration between strong movement and secure stability." - Pavel Vavruch Curalor of art.
