Art Universities – the Future of Art?

Vienna Art Academy, Schillerplatz

This past weekend I attended the open studios (Rundgang) of the Vienna Academy of the Fine Arts (Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien). In the unending push to remain abreast with the current art trends, the past is cut off and cast aside as worn out worthless rubbish. That is, unless, it earns some money, like the Painting Gallery, which houses valuable Old Masters artworks from Rubens, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Hieronymus Bosch and Titian.

Max Ernst Retrospective Exhibition – Albertina Vienna

"Temptation of St. Anthony" Max Ernst

It’s a Tuesday night in Vienna. What to do? Go to the premier opening of the Max Ernst retrospective exhibition in the Albertina, of course. Thanks goes to Celene and Jutta Venosa for making this possible. Otto Rapp and Timea Tallian were also there to gaze, point. Pick the artists!

Juxtaposition – When New Ideas Happen

Vienna Studio Corner

Those moments of empty minded clarity, when not much is happening, lounging on the obligatory comfy studio sofa, looking at the artwork. In my Vienna studio, two unrelated paintings suddenly took on a new meaning together.

Dissolution - pen on paper, 2013

I recently did a version of an earlier painting of mine in pen. Some one has the chance to own the original drawing I made, as I am selling it on eBay.
