The crouching youngster is based on a sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarotti. Like all the other black and white oil paintings, this young man is in a universe. A sphere, perhaps a planet, is hidden in the upper corner of the picture, penetrated by a beam that seems to have its origin beneath the buttocks. The shoulders and hips of this figure, which seems to float in the darkness of infinity, are the most prominent. The white frame seems to be made of plaster - but it is made of wood. To this oil painting belongs inseparably a smaller version as a relief (woodcut), also black and white and through the frame about the same size.

About the artist

MARTIN METZGER

Portrait_37.jpg
Martin Metzger began drawing political cartoons at a very young age and soon began selling them to newspapers and magazines. The first exhibition in 1985, the artist was 15 years old, was also determined by the caricature. But just one year later, he turned to portraits and soon to the representation of the whole body. While still at school in an art high school, he attended nude and anatomy courses with Prof. Martinz and Prof. Carer at the Vienna Art School. From 1988 he was a regular student there.

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.

His works are privately owned by numerous well-known personalities.
