Exhi­bi­tion from 22.04.2023 — 31.05.2023





Klaus Fuss­mann, painter and graph­ic artist, born in Vel­bert (D) in 1938, is one of the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the new rep­re­sen­ta­tion­al­ism. His motifs and themes are nature and cre­ation. Fuss­mann impress­es with his unmis­tak­able style, in which he mas­ter­ful­ly han­dles form and col­or, blend­ing the bound­aries between abstrac­tion and fig­u­ra­tion. In par­tic­u­lar, the artist has redis­cov­ered for him­self the tech­nique of linocut. Clear, strong col­ors cre­ate rich col­or sur­faces that con­jure up vivid land­scapes and col­or-inten­sive plant worlds. His flower motifs blur into col­or struc­tures that, despite abstrac­tion, do not deny the typ­i­cal shape of the indi­vid­ual plants. Klaus Fuss­mann lives and works in Gelt­ing on the Baltic Sea and in Berlin.
The exhi­bi­tion will fea­ture col­or linocuts by the artist.

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.
