Johann Julian Taupe

Exhi­bi­tion from 11/25/2020 – 01/09/2021

Johann Julian Taupe, born in Gritschach near Vil­lach in 1954, stud­ied from 1976 to 1981 at the Acad­e­my of Fine Arts in Vien­na with Prof. Max Weil­er. From 1981 to 1983 Taupe was a lec­tur­er with Prof. Arnulf Rain­er at the Acad­e­my of Fine Arts in Vien­na and received the Aus­tri­an State Schol­ar­ship for Fine Arts from 1983 to 1984.

For Julian Taupe, paint­ing is an ongo­ing process, an expres­sion of his expe­ri­ences and impres­sions. He invites the view­er to find his own con­tin­u­a­tion. The artist repeat­ed­ly reassem­bles abstract, col­or­ful frag­ments. Clear forms with part­ly fig­u­ra­tive ele­ments in bright col­ors cre­ate the impres­sion of a deep­er lev­el. New can­vas works by the artist shown in the exhibition.
