andrea bischof
next to her paintings andrea bischof has been experimenting with silk paper as a picture carrier carrier for about 15 years. she approaches the highly sensitive material via various techniques. the use of thread and needle results in embroidered images (“lucky chance”) or in images burnt with fire (“holy smoke”). with the help of water drops informal structures are created on colorful paper (“abiquiu”).

maurizio bonato
in his romantic-meditative explorations of auratic places – different from the quotidian – maurizio bonato discovers compositions which, as artistic testaments, capture special moments in the process of an artwork’s creation: signs, symbols, codes, associations, references, silhouettes, shadows. with his “romantic procedure” (in the sense of the german “romantik” as a one of the most significant manifestations of the art and philosophical history of modernity) he succeeds in designing utopian images of so-called realities from historically discovered material, thus retrieving half-forgotten, half-concealed aesthic values and restoring them for the present. (elmar zom, munich)

giuliano caporali
works by giuliano caporali show a poetic oeuvre which needs to be placed in the category of the informal. again and again, the linguistic component plays a role in his works.

jörg coblenz
jörg coblenz shows embroidered childhood memories for which he uses old machines, ranging from knitting to sewing machines, which he takes from close-down factories. in this way, multifaceted works emerge.  

michael defner
works by the tyrolean artist predominantly encompass sculptures, drawings, and paintings.  

anita kontrec
even as far as writing and language are concerned (which are always more or less present in kontrec’s works), her special interest belongs to the archaic forms. she derives her inspiration as much from phoenician writing or the image-like letter forms of the glagoliza (the first slavic alphabet from the 9th century ad) as from sanskrit characters. writing, for her, is a means of appropriating and interpreting the world, sense and pictographic form, material significant and magical sign. in kontrec’s works, letters move through different layers of meaning, and, in connection with that, different materializations such as paper, plaster, clay, stone, bronze, gold, and synthetic resin. these concentrate material presence and immaterial meaning, sound and tone while simultaneously cast in  an often vaguely anthropomorphic shape and plastic pithiness. kontrec’s writing-images are palimpsests which represent the simultaneity and multi-layered character of language/writing/communication. (peter lodermeyer)

gerhild diesner
gerhild diesner studied in london, munich, and paris, and she has remained true to herself in her unique, unmistakable handwriting, which was kindled at an early age by the elementary experiences of a van gogh, gaugin, or matisse. over the course of her life, the artist received numerous awards for her works. in 1975 the federal ministry of education, arts, and culture awarded her the title of a professor. 1994 art award of the province of tyrol; 1995 great solo exhibition at the landesmuseum and death of the artist.

christine frei
christine frei presents the work “pullaugen.”

lukas m. hüller
lukas hüller’s specialty are panorama photographs, which he realizes with adapted special and home-made cameras – the “larscan-rundhorison-camera.” by rotating the camera about its axis as the film unreels synchronously to the movement of the camera, photographs are created that offer an perspective of 360 degrees and more. this panoramic vision, reduced to a two-dimensional image, enables the synchronous perception of locations or events that are apart from each other and which the human eye itself cannot take in at one glance.

andreas paulic
in his works, andreas paulic presents seemingly random scribbling, telephone notes taken while lost in thought. a world emerges which obscures what is potentially important and places the banal into the foreground. the abundance of quotes and references from art and the media is enormous and does not fail in its humor and irony. chaos intensifies from sheet to sheet, and yet order is again created through personal intervention. 90 sketches, compactly put up, forcefully confront beholders who are introduced into a microcosm of collage-like and graphic enmeshments.

fridolin purtscheller
seeing and interpreting structures as they appear in nature was a focus of my scientific work in the alps and the himalaya. also as far as photography is concerned, i am fascinated by structures in various areas. my main interest in this context lies on analogous black-and-white photography. it is important to me to develop and enlarge my images by myself.

gabriela proksch
the meaning of abstraction is the skill to explore fundamental human dramas through concealment and revelation. proksch has realized this very well and her paintings demonstrate this understanding. (susan isaacs)

gitti schneider
in her paintings, gitti schneider confronts us with an associative yet abstract kind of viewing. despite the formal spontaneity, the colorings that are applied communicate the calmness and equilibrium of the composition. every now and then certain geometrical forms such as circles or ovals put themselves in the foreground and thus become the governing element of the arranged image. in some paintings, a strong red additionally corresponds with warm earth colors or shades of gray or green and so not only introduces more “life” to the images, but in some cases even rips them open in an aggressive and explosion-like manner that creates a character of vulnerability and violability. the works thus communicate subjective experiences, are notations of emotional processes. (günther dankl)

nora schöpfer
in the aesthetic product of the image, nora schöpfer locates the secret of human existence in moments and interstices of concentration and dissolution and begins at the point where forms are about to change again. when she is talking about the “quality of the intangible moment,” it might be an indicator that the moment, especially in its state of sudden volatility, is congruent with the sensation of happiness. (günther moschig)

arnulf rainer
born in 1929 in baden bei wien, arnulf rainer is one of the most important european artists whose works are exhibited in all european cities of arts and the usa. he started out with highly detailed graphic drawings which belong to the neo-surrealist school. he then tried to articulate the relationship between artist and citizen in his “übermalungen” and designed the world of the subconscious with felt pens and crayons on transparent sheets. his works are characterized by the consequent search for new artistic forms and ways of expression, the exploration of liminal areas and the calling into question what is known and what has been achieved.

franz wassermann
the artist franz wassermann employs authentic objects items for his actions which he takes from his environment, changes via intervention and re-implants into the social body. his works force the system and the individual to get into contact with their taboos. intense reactions are triggered and reveal the connection between power, violence, and laws. “i am a virus invading the body. i infect and the body reacts.” (franz wassermann)
