February 2 through February 14, 2018 – phrasierung von strich und form
OPENING EVENT: Wednesday, February 1, 2018, 7:00pm
In the presence of the artist.
DURATION OF THE EXHIBITION: February 2 – February 14, 2018
With the series “Bilder aus Wien”, 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 “intangible”. The passionately painted surface structures are broken by fradulent beings in subtle way. Thus, Moritz’s pictures form an analogy to a Viennese dialectic: complicated, complicated, witty.
She calls her ink pictures cenotaphs. Realities that are pre-existent in atmospheres and unnamabeal longing, sometimes inspired by photographic images, they form the content of the subject. The elements from which Regina Moritz give her visual views, tell of spaces in which the viewer can rest. In contrast to the socio-historical metaphors of her oil paintings and installations, where the very searching of the viewer find its place.
Regina Moritz was born in Schärding, Austria. Since 2004 she has been working with the non-colors black and white and the intervening greyscales, always in square format. Her collages are fragments of Viennese everyday life. She is a member of the Gesellschaft bildender Künstlerinnen und Kunstler Österreichs, Künstlerhaus; lives and works in Vienna.
