Church of Reith
2012, Oil on canvas, 60 x 60 cm, incl. self-made black wooden frame with rear panel.
The church of Reith near Kitzbühel is dominated by a typical Tyrolean or West Austrian church tower. On the picture the tower divides the Kaisergebirge in the background into two parts. The church roof in the lower left half merges harmoniously into the mountain. The very scarcely used green as a splash of color probably shows a spring picture. In contrast, the still mighty snow surface of the "Elmauer Tor" to the right of the church tower probably represents the late winter in the mountains.
The painting comes with a self-made black wooden frame with rear panel.
About the artist
In addition, painting, always starting from the clear line, became more and more important. At this time the artist Oscar Asboth supported him immensely in artistic respects, which led to a strong, above all human development.
Today his stylistic elements are part of Metzger's latest paintings. For some time now he has also been working together with his wife Birgit on the "Gesamtkunstwerk". From interiors and fashion to theatre sets and performance projects. Core and starting point, however, are always his drawings or paintings, shown at about 100 exhibitions in Austria and abroad, among others for the Austrian Foreign Ministry. Most recently collaboration with the Austrian Ski Association.
Martin Metzger lives and works in Kitzbühel, Tyrol, Austria.
