From 22 January to 28 March 2016 – Albertina
Many people know Hans Robert Pippal (1915–1998) above all for his charming views of Vienna. And indeed, it was with great passion that this perhaps “most Viennese” of 20th-century Austrian painters devoted himself to his hometown. Pippal painted representative streets and buildings like the Ringstrasse, the State Opera, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, and the Graben, as well as atmospheric scenes from Vienna’s outer districts. He was virtually unexcelled at capturing the city’s atmosphere as it changed over the course of the day and the seasons.
The artist’s entire oeuvre is characterised by the desire to catch up to international figurative modernism following the war, as well as by his struggle to arrive at an appropriate style for his respective motifs or themes.

While Pippal’s paintingsof cities are oriented toward late impressionism, his early illustrations take after those of Alfred Kubin. And the small number of his works that deal with Christian content follow the example of Georges Rouault, a central figure of modern religious painting. The stylistic diversity employed by Pippal is by no means random eclecticism, but rather bears witness to the artists’ constant quest to find an adequate form of artistic expression for the motif at hand.This makes his artistic output a highly individual contribution to the history of modern fine art in Austria.

Constant Permeke – Retrospective – Bruxelles – Belgium

From October 11, 2012 to January 20th 2013 – Bozar – Centre for fine Arts

He was a contemporary of Otto Dix and Egon Schiele. But the expressionism Constant Permeke (1886-1969) demonstrated had a very specific personality, reflecting the little people of Flanders – workers, women with many children and peasants – who led a very rugged existence. Dark colors, the power of charcoal often mixed with paint, the monumental approach (the rigidity of his women reminds one of antique goddesses) made Permeke the herald of Flemish expressionism.

et his reputation did not cross the borders easily. By bringing together 130 of his works, the organizers also wish to show his modernity and they chose to confront him to two contemporary artists – Marlene Dumas and her nudes, Thierry de Cordier and his landscapes.

Ted Vasin. Poison Bliss – Miami – Florida

Plugin | 58x83 | Acrylic on Canvas | 2011


From April 14 to June 6, 2012 – 101/Exhibit – Miami

San Francisco-based artist Ted Vasin display his thought-provoking paintings in a solo show titled Poison Bliss at 101/exhibit. Vasin, who has been with the Miami-based gallery for some time, has previously only participated in their group shows so this exhibit marks his fi rst solo outing with the edgy gallery.
“We think he represents a very important part of our program here at the gallery,” remarks Sloan Schaffer, owner of 101/exhibit, “and we think his imagery and techniques are unique and compelling, and we are excited to see the reactions from Ted’s work here in Miami.”
Schaffer notes that the materials Vasin uses and the narratives he creates within the works are unique and provocative. “I think it’s pretty provocative imagery and it almost feels psychedelic in nature. It’s going to be exciting,” he elaborates.
At first glance, collectors may think that Vasin’s works are drawings, but they’re both. They’re finely-crafted paintings using acrylic, metallic paint and graphite on canvas that relay Vasin’s distinctive technique and style. “The work is wild and it’s psychedelic and it’s contemporary and fresh,” adds Schaffer. “He’s not afraid to make a statement and his work sort of substantiates a lot of what he is thinking or feeling. It’s a strong narrative, and of course that fi ts within our program. We like to have work that you have to react to and engage with.” (Art Collector)
