The picture "Am Schwarzen Kreuz" from 2012 was made for a large exhibition in the parish courtyard of Kitzbühel and marks a caesura to the long maintained technique without using much light and shadow. The line, that is the origin of the picture, is still emphasized. In places, the surface, rather than the different colour nuances, replaces it, creating a three-dimensionality that creates a somewhat different kind of liveliness.

In addition, in this series the depiction of the face was mostly dispensed with and the figure was emphasized, especially through special views, thus also strong, unusual perspectives.

The painting comes with a self-made black wooden frame with rear panel.

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.
