Gunter Damisch: Worlds and Ways
1. Nov 14 - 25. Jan 15
This exhibition is a selection of works by Gunter Damisch (b. 1958) from the 1980s to 2013. On dislay are both graphic works which Damisch has given Reykjavík Art Museum and a selection of other works by him. The works are highly individual iconography and mythology oscillates between figuration and abstraction. Within the framework of this exhibition are early works from the 1980s and his recent production of monumental woodcuts, monotypes, and printed collages. Damisch prints works in all technics but lately he has used wooden panels as the plates, sheets of industrial ply-wood.
The artist (born in Steyr/Upper Austria in 1958) became known in the wake of the Neue Wilde or the New Wild Ones, a loose group of young artists responding to the internationally proclaimed downfall of painting with expressive, colourful pictures. Since 1992 the artist has held a professorship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.
