Karl Korab

Exhi­bi­tion from 27.04.2022 — 06.06.2022



Karl Korab, born in 1937 in Falken­stein (Low­er Aus­tria), stud­ied from 1957 to 1964 at the Acad­e­my of Fine Arts in Vien­na with Prof. Sergius Pauser. Since 1980 the artist lives and works in Son­ndorf in the Wald­vier­tel. In his paint­ings Korab con­cen­trates on still life and land­scape, but it is not about tra­di­tion­al land­scape paint­ing. Through his sub­tle abstrac­tion, he opens the viewer’s eye to redis­cov­er the hous­es of his child­hood and makes new inter­pre­ta­tions pos­si­ble. Over the decades, Karl Korab was and is a trav­el­er who always returns home.
The exhi­bi­tion will fea­ture oil paint­ings, col­lages, gouach­es and draw­ings from the artist’s work.

The artist, born in Bangkok in 1952, has been work­ing con­tin­u­ous­ly on work blocks in small for­mat for years. On the one hand, he com­pos­es col­ored sur­faces with pig­ments on the paper primed with beeswax. The sec­ond group of works com­pris­es reduced black and white pic­ture compositions.

Suvat grad­u­at­ed from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Arts in Vien­na. Since 1983 the artist has par­tic­i­pat­ed in numer­ous exhi­bi­tions and exhi­bi­tion par­tic­i­pa­tions in Aus­tria, Ger­many and Italy. Suvat lives and works in Vienna.
