KONRAD WINTER

 Konrad Winter is an Austrian painter working in lush, iridescent colors, a Modern Impressionist, a “Master of dazzling colors”.

Born in 1963, and currently working in Salzburg, Austria, Mr. Winter has been exhibited widely in Europe, at international fairs (including Art Cologne, Cologne Artfair, art Bodensee), and
S. Korea;  we are proud to present his work as his exclusive US representative. Winter’s “Camouflaged Landscapes” are based on photographs, tourist brochures and postcards. From a distance a realistic image is perceptible. However, when moving closer, the image dissolves into patches of color, into painting. This transition from perceptibility into abstraction poses questions about the content of the painting and its perception.

Konrad has responded to the global economic situation by concentrating more on our socioeconomic world, resulting in his “Camouflaged Prosperity” series. The choice of materials used – automotive lacquer on aluminum – refers to the conflict between naturalness and artificiality, the view of the ambivalence between paradise and reality, thus questioning the two extremes: superfluous wealth and poverty.
