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 display are both graphic works which Damisch has given the Reykjavík Art Museum and a selection of other works by him. The works are highly individual in iconography and mythology and oscillate between figuration and abstraction. The exhibition includes early works from the 1980s and Damisch’s recent monumental woodcuts, monotypes, and printed collages. Damisch prints works in all technics but lately he has used sheets of industrial ply-wood panels as the plates.
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.
