"Booby Trap" - Haus der Kunst

Julie Caniglia - Artforum 2002

"Von der Ahe’s paintings are so voluptuous, so simple yet sumptuous that the risk vapidity"

"First and Foremost one is aware of von der Ahe's sophiscated sense of design. The limpid elegeance has an ingratiating appeal that ultimately disarms any revulsion to the artist bodily medium"

Grady T. Turner - Art in America 2000


"In some way this fiery redhead's intimate inner maps become universal reminding us that regardless of our gender, we are all only human, just flesh and blood after all"
Greg Garry - Flaunt 2009
