Paper is one of the oldest materials of mankind. Only paper made a comprehensive written transmission of literature, history, religious and legal texts and data from trade and science possible.

Until the industrial revolution, paper was a valuable material that was made from different fibers with different techniques depending on the region and was spread almost worldwide.

Produced cheaper and cheaper today in large quantities, it became an everyday mass product that spread across the globe in incredible variety and use.

Paper is a message carrier, between the idea and the viewer or reader, a mediating element. Paper is familiar to us as a carrier material for words, signs and images, everyday life. Cultivated, used, battered, used, carelessly thrown away, daily, in masses.

Today, information is inflationary. Libraries are being digitized, encyclopedias are available on the Internet, web blocks and discussion forums on the www. are temporary, constantly changing. We have the illusion of being able to inform ourselves comprehensively at any time and anywhere.

My work interrupts the data overload. Books, catalogues, magazines, the described, printed paper is disassembled, cut, folded, glued and reassembled, the texts can only be decoded fragmentarily. Texts become information garbage and the printed paper becomes a new aesthetic appeal.

REVIEW VERNISSAGE ON 19.12.2014 at 7.00 pm

The confrontation with art comes unexpectedly and at an early stage of human development.

For example, my mother judged a key flower depiction produced by me as a work of art in my childhood, although the work drawn or painted by my brother was not – or from my personal point of view – only slightly less ingenious than mine. So I’m the artist.

Only later does a person capable of reproduction ask himself from which level of the entire spectrum of his ego he gets out of what he wants to get out of a dialogue with others or with himself.

Sculpture is just such an example that comes from the inside, usually made of wood or stone or clay of course.

And the graphics, which naturally project the space into the surface without forgetting the freedom of space.

When using the tools of sculpture, it is important not to forget purposefulness by shaking laughter.

Painting, graphics of all kinds, sculpture, especially sculpture, are excellent representatives of human freedom, the freedom of human thought and feeling, whether acquired academically or autodidactically.

The exhibition is intended to show the mental or emotional connection to conversation or self-talk, to correspondence or secret diary, to free singing or shouting on a hike or skilful music for art.

Be sure, no smartphone, no CD, etc. can keep up.

Review: Andrea-Maria Windischbauer

Born in Salzburg in 1942, she lived in Salzburg and Rome. She completed her studies at the Graphische Akademie in Munich and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg with Professor Bruno Gallée from 1962 to 1967. In the years 1965/1966 she also attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome in the field of stage design. In Rome she participates in the exhibition “Dante Aligheieri” and is awarded the Silver Medal of the City of Rome. In the 1960s, 70s and 80s she exhibited in many major European cities, including Rome, Vienna, Regensburg, Salzburg and Munich. Buyers from the Albertina, Vienna, the Ministry of Education, Vienna and the Provincial Government of Salzburg made her one of the renowned artists of the time. Due to health reasons, she increasingly withdrew to her homeland, the Salzburger Land, where she died in 2010.

Dark mirror in my soul
Are pictures of never seen seas,
Abandoned, tragic, fantastic countries,
Melting into the blue, approximate.

Georg Trakl Estate; from “Three Dreams”

Perhaps it helps the viewer of my pictures to read this poem by my compatriot and poet Georg Trakl, who I admire very much, because it actually says a lot about the content of my pictures. I share certain sentiments that can be found in some of his poems. About the content from the expression of my pictures I can not express much in words. That’s why I paint and don’t write. In all my paintings I try to evoke certain moods in the viewer.

In the middle of the garden. In the middle of Oberaudorf.

My green time out.

The Alpenhof offers a refined concept.
More green, more flair. More conscious enjoyment, more experience.
