Series Intersection 16.01 - Settlement House
2016, Acrylic cast foil, 110 x 71 cm (WxH), on wooden plate
In the series of Intersections it is all about exploring the intersections of imprints in our blackboxes. Some are restricted to cultural circles others are global. To achieve this the degree recognition is lowered to a minimum by strong abstraction of the motif. Is communication by the least common denominator possible by the representations through simple geometric forms?
About the artist
In the times of upheaval at the age of 15 he sees for the first time works like „Eierbrett“ of the Dadaist Hans Arp.
The fact that you can paint plywood with colour and this becoming art fascinates him. Since then many images stand before his inner eye, all of them shouting: do it, make me a work of art !
To learn "something proper" he studies architecture at the Bauhaus-Universität in Weimar from 2001 onwards, with space for artistic experiments.
After finnishing his diploma in 2008, the seriuos side of life begins. With a short recess he lives and works in vienna since then. Architecture is also interesting, and if doing something he does it thoroughly. This interst brings him from the design of a folded three-stair sculpture to leading well sized building-projects.
In 2016 he notices a blank side to his life and of course it has to do with the fact, that because of all the architecture he is only following very few calls of his inner images.
Its not working for me like this he decides, and also that producing pieces of art is the most important in life! The artist is reborn and feels very content in his new atelier. All starts off very well, two exhebitions in viennas top gallery street "Schleifmühlgasse". How the story continues, he doesn't know, but a gallery has to come along, still more deals are to be made and a lot of exhebitions, because works of art want to be adopted and want to be seen.
