> DESCRIPTION

In the 1980s, Gunter Damisch (born in Steyr/Upper Austria in 1958) became known in the wake of the "Neue Wilde" or "New Wild Ones", a loose group of young artists responding to the internationally proclaimed downfall of painting with expressive, colourful pictures. Within his extensive oeuvre, Damisch has conceived a highly individual iconography and mythology that oscillates between figuration and abstraction and by which he fathoms his pictorial worlds. Since 1992 the artist has held a professorship in printmaking at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Within the framework of this exhibition, his recent production of monumental woodcuts, monotypes, and printed collages will be on public view for the first time.
