Exhibition from 13.10.2021 — 20.11.2021
The artist, who was born in Amstetten in 1958, is nature is a source of inspiration. His painting shows the roughness of the mountain landscapes that inspire the artist. In his recurring motifs he tries to reproduce the movements of the water, to take up the rhythm of the water and to transfer it to the canvas. Helmut Swoboda works with brushes, brooms, sponges, rags and materials he finds in nature. His creative process is primarily about seeing, and implementing what he sees. In his landscape ideas Swoboda plays with the border between the abstract and the representational. In the process, his landscape motifs increasingly approach the abstract and monochrome. Swoboda’s art lives from the dialectic between the reference to nature and the autonomy of the sometimes quite monochrome condensed image. (Peter Weiermair)
The exhibition will feature recent works on paper and canvas by the artist.
