Book of the day.
Ernst Fuchs published by Draeger, Paris (1977).
As this book is in German I can only read it with the aid of my good friend Google Translate.The fortunate thing is that these images transcend language along with most other agreed boundaries.
Fuchs was one of those artists like Dali or Trémois who plundered our European heritage and then tossed it in front a giant surreal lense; one that refocuses the past within a very personal landscape; peopled by refracted images of one's self and the objects of desire. Fuchs is joined by the enormous sensual bottom of his model/muse, bringing the erotic to meet the ascetic and a whole cast of other chimeras and Olmec beasts.
Fuchs was a Jewish convert to Catholicism and it's that judaeo-christian vocabulary that makes his work at once; comforting and mystical, shocking and apocalyptic.
The ALBERTINA Museum is devoting a comprehensive solo presentation to the works of photographer Manfred Willmann (*1952). In his series, Willmann captures scenes from his personal surroundings in Graz and southern Styria, scenes that break with clichés of idyllic rural life. His pictures reveal a very direct and subjective view characterized by his consistent use of the flash and focus on details. Willmann is also one of the first Austrian photographers who used color as a means of artistic expression. The ALBERTINA Museum is showing six large series from Manfred Willmann’s oeuvre, including the influential work groups Schwarz und Gold and Das Land. #albertina#albertinamuseum#manfredwillmann#photography#austrianartist#austrianphotographer#exhibition#art#vienna#wien
On the way through life everyone reaches continuous stations of decision: Is it right to remain stuck in this job? Should I move? How happy am I in this relationship? In such moments of disorientation, many of us seek advice from friends, family or counselors.
The former main train station of Vienna (Südbahnhof) featured an art installation of a female and male eye by Kurt Hofstetter. Since 1994 the eyes have done 75 millionen blinks, supported by the sound of an old Russian clock, while passengers where passing. The eyes represented the beginning of the "regime of seeing". Vienna, Austria (2007).
I finished son goku! I really enjoyed painting these. I will continue painting small anime paintings but I won't only paint animes or with acrylics. I need change. I like to step out of my comfort zone which means trying new things like oils or looking really stupid while taking this picture of my painting for social media. 🎨 But I like it and I hope you like it as well! .
"liar" Oilpastels.... Dieses Bild entstand aus einem Gefühl der Enttäuschung..... Viele werden dieses Gefühl kennen, von einem vertrauten Menschen bitter enttäuscht worden zu sein. Eine tiefgreifende Erfahrung, von der man sich oft nur langsam und schwer erholt.
