Andreas Roseneder Die Flucht des Asozialen /Flight of the Anti-Social oil on canvas 60×120 cm, 2002
A traditional oilpainting I realized 2002 (!) as a paraphrase on Gottfried Kumpf´s trade-marked idolon “Der Asoziale / The Anti-Social” – The artist´s trade-mark sets out his travel, leaves the scene with a walking-stick, stepping over the slippery frozen surface of a lake, the burning surroundings of the lake´s reed-shore enlightened by a blue icy sun.
Last month I had the chance to meet the artist at Vienna in the course of an interview for the magazine PANNOrama: he has left 3 years ago his old house near the shore of the lake Neusiedl where he lived for more than 40 years & has found now for him & his idolon a refuge in the city of Austrian´s capital. – to see my recent post about that story & his actual work just scroll down or click: Der Kumpf (sorry to say it is written in German).
