Delicious coincidences

Vernissage 2 Oct. 16 h

Funded by the NEUSTART KULTUR program of the Stiftung Kunstfonds for the promotion of contemporary visual arts, current abstract reverse glass paintings will be shown.

Coincidence can be used as an explanation for many things, be it the question of the reason for our existence, whether a butterfly can actually trigger a natural disaster by flapping its wings, or prevent the same by doing so.

“Hans Vinzenz Seidl’s works oscillate between these poles of the imaginable (or less imaginable). The baroque exuberance of Seidl’s world of forms enters into an almost dangerous love affair with a color scheme that sometimes borders on kitsch. In the process, classically traditional painting materials meet, just as unexpectedly and quite naturally, with costly high-tech substances of the 21st century. Artistic calculation and control on the one hand, and playful chance on the other, lead in interaction to very astonishing results.”
