Helmut Swoboda

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.
