Matthias Lidys works are dominated by powerful and colorful expressivity, brilliant dynamics and formal radicalism. In Salzburg he found a teacher in the painter Martha Jungwirth, from whose materially subtle works he profited a lot. Also affinities to the painting style of Arnulf Reiner, Josef Mikl and Jürgen Messensee can be found in his works. His paintings are emotional, eruptive and intuitive.
Mitthias Lidy was born in Seewinkel in 1954 and attended the International Summer Academy in Salzburg. His poetic, expressive images have been exhibited in Vienna, Munich, Paris, Basel, Zurich and Gran Canaria. He works in Austria and Gran Canaria, Tenerife.

Within the framework of the exhibition “Poesie in Farbe und Metall” with works by Matthias Lidy, a book presentation will take place. Thede Kahl, Professor of Southern Slavic Studies and Southeast European Studies, reads from his 2018 book “Nature and People in the Danube Delta”. The Danubian Delta Biosphere Reserve is the largest wetland in Europe with the largest closed reedbed in the world.
Lisi Nielsen and George Hochmuth, two photojournalists from Austria present photos from their series “Danube Delta”. They accompanied two Romanian professional fishermen. The men must meet strict environmental requirements to ensure a substantial fishery. Since Romania’s accession to the European Union, they have had to compete with cheaper foreign fishing, which makes it difficult for them to keep a stable price.

Their powerful imagery is an immediate expression of their individual attitude to life. The exhibition aims to address the viewer’s unconsciousness.
The exhibition begins with the works of Regina Moritz. In her “Pictures from Vienna”, a collage-like combination of painterly and graphic elements, the artist constructs a pictorial language in which the motivic template is perceptible but at the same time appears “intangible”.
Ada Muntean explores the grim, sensitive side of things that shape our lives both on a conscious and unconscious level. The artist sets herself apart with the loss of innocence and identity, in a powerful portrait of a society riven by her own ignorance and obsession.
The beautiful engravings by Atena Elena Simionescu draw attention to the fragility of our nature.
In his series “Intimate Distances”, the Austrian artist Stefan Nützel deals with the most diverse forms of intimacy and opens up insights into the subliminal, the hidden, the unsaid – a thematic continuum in the artistic oeuvre of the artist.
By Constantin Pacea expressive and powerful works one recognizes his soul.
Ion Mandrescu makes strikingly realistic limb studies into powerful monumental sculptures. These are not classic Bozetto-like pieces, but a really successful work of art.
