Narrative Paintings, 2009-2010
I solidified my initial stylistic choices in regards to narrative painting and drawing in 2009-2010, when still studying at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. How to narrate a person or situation visually? How do symbols, geometries and figuration interact? How do narration and portraiture overlap?
I experimented both in large and small scale, to get a deeper feeling of how physical size influences the viewing experience and the work’s emotionality.
Works from this series have been exhibited at Das Weisse Haus (Vienna), Galerie Frey (Vienna), Galerie Schloss Parz, Kunstverein Mistelbach, Museum Angerlehner, Salve Art Gallery (Leipzig), Künstlerhaus Wien etc.
