nature´s colours correspond now with art patches

 this July in Vasilikos on Greek Ionian island Zakynthos at SOAK Summer Academy again. the morning before I started to hold courses in acrylic painting I went in down to seaside to try painting the colours of the sky & sea in watercolour technique – concentrating on the movements of the waves in moving the brush to bring their short timed beauty on paper

 a really rapid venture with sudden changing movements of breaking waves  & colour splashes before eyes:

“Wir möchten das OÖ Kulturquartier als einen außergewöhnlichen ästhetischen Erfahrungsraum etablieren”, sagt der künstlerische Leiter Martin Sturm. Bespielt werden nicht nur die klassische Ausstellungsräume, sondern auch Gänge, Stiegenhäuser, Dachböden und Teile des Höhenrausch-Daches. Der neu renovierte Ursulinensaal ist der dramaturgische Abschluss des Rundganges und wird damit auch dem Ausstellungspublikum vorgestellt.

The big “rausch” exhibitions mounted since 2009 are ambitious art outreach programs. “We have created this format with the aim of inspiring a greater appreciation for art in broad sections of the public,” says Dr. Josef Pühringer, Minister-President of Upper Austria and Cultural Advisor. Unusual exhibition locations and artworks that strongly appeal to the senses are ideal for this purpose.

the exhibition concept of ORBIS PICTUS PLAY culminates in the pivotal work The Heart in the Ursulinensaal. The instruments and objects here are all “analog” and function without any electronics, computer technology, recorded music or film clips. They have therefore somehow “fallen out of time and are for that very reason all the more present,” says Director Martin Sturm. Human energy is the only force that can breathe life into them, setting them in motion and making them produce sounds.

“I’m talking about something that’s so impossible, it can’t possibly be true. But it’s the only way the world is going to survive, this impossible thing. My job is to change 5 billions of people to something else. Totally impossible. But everything that’s possible has been done by man, I have to deal with the impossible. And when I deal with the impossible and am successful, it makes me feel good because I know I’m not bullshittin’.”

last friday at Gerersdorf, Austria: Prof.  Gerhard Kisser receives the “Award Kunstmediator 2012/ Art Mediator 2012” conferred & sculptor Franz Wieser shows his work (until June 17th) in the open air museum Gerersdorf, where the last 40 years an ensemble of old regional architecture & commodities was initially installed by founder Gerhard Kisser & a host of volunteers.

zur Ausstellung ANDREAS ROSENEDER & ADOLF TUMA mit kulinarischer Präsentation von BERNIE RIEDER zum Opening am 5. April 2012, 19.00 Uhr im Cafe EBINGER, Eisenstadt Ausstellungsdauer bis 30. April

 Künstler und Koch – beide müssen sich Lorbeeren oder Hauben schwer erarbeiten, um bestehen zu können: die Konkurrenz ist groß und mit der rasanten Verbreitung ihrer Arbeit durch die Medien wird ihr Werk immer schneller zum „dejá vu et dejá mangé“. Gustav Ebinger hat nach der Karriere auf der Medienleiter das Handtuch geschmissen, es mit dem Serviertuch getauscht und das alte „Schloßcafe“, das schon sein Urgroßvater zu Beginn des letzten Jahrhunderts führte, zum „Ebinger“ gemodelt. Mit Bernie Rieder hat er für die Küche – „gute Küche hat schon immer ein gutes Kaffeehaus ausgemacht“ – einen  Koch gefunden, der bereits mit 21 Jahren zum jüngsten Haubenkoch Österreichs gekürt wurde. In diesen wilden Jahren malte Rieder sogar nebenbei und kreirte mit dem Maler und leidenschaftlichen Koch Andreas Roseneder ein sechsgängiges Menü in der Küche für dessen Vernissagengäste –  und so nebenbei wurden die Wände bemalt… Parallelen ergaben sich auch danach, Andreas Roseneder gründete mit dem Bildhauer Rudolf Pinter „Der Turm“ im Flugsicherungsturm am Flugplatz Trausdorf zur Realisierung künstlerischer Aktivitäten, Bernie Rieder führte das Restaurant „Das Turm“ im obersten Geschoß eines der Twintowers in Wien / Favoriten zu einem Treffpunkt der Gourmets. Ein solcher Liebhaber feinen Essens wie Koch ist auch der Künstler Adolf Tuma.  Er hat seine Lehre als Lithograf in der Briefmarkenabteilung der Österreichischen Staatsdruckerei gemacht und arbeitet noch heute dort im Wertzeichenatelier. Seine Auftraggeber waren aber auch schon die Post Liechtensteins, Luxemburgs, Kuwaits und San Marinos, der Tierpark Schönbrunn & der Nationalpark Donauauen bis hin zur Österreichischen Nationalbank. – Seine Hände haben die Portraits von Rosa Mayreder und Karl Landsteiner der letzten Fünfhunderter- und Tausender-Schillingscheine gezeichnet. Und bisher sind über 100 Briefmarken mit Adolf Tumas Ideen bestückt. „Da stecken viele Arbeitsstunden in so einer Marke drin.” Erst kürzlich erhielt er zum zweiten Mal die „Yehudi Menuhin Trophy“ für die schönste Musikbriefmarke der Welt. Kennengelernt haben sich die Künstler Adolf „Hugo“ Tuma und Andreas Roseneder vor Jahren auf der Insel Zakynthos, wo Roseneder an der Sommerakademie Griechenland Acrylmalkurse leitet. Trotz unterschiedlicher künstlerischer Ambitionen und deren verschiedener technischer Umsetzung  entstand eine Freundschaft, die sie noch heute verbindet.

What’s up – What’s going on? What’s on the menu?

In good German WAS IST? – WOS ISST?


with culinary presentation by BERNIE RIEDER at the

Opening on 5. April 2012, 19.00 hrs at Cafe EBINGER, Eisenstadt

Duration of exhibition until 30. July

 Artist and cook – both have to work hard for laurels or hoods, in order to exist: the competition is tough and with the rapid dissemination of their work through the media, their work mutates much more quickly to a “déjà vu et déjà mangé.” After a media career, Gustav Ebinger has thrown in the legendary towel, replaced it with a waiter cloth and was able to remodel the old “Schloßcafe”, which his great-grandfather already led at the beginning of last century, into the “Ebinger”. With Bernie Rieder he has for the kitchen – “good cooking has always made out a good café” – found a cook, who was already crowned at age 21 to become the youngest chef in Austria. In those wild years Rieder even painted casually and created together with the painter and passionate chef Andreas Roseneder a six-course meal in the kitchen for his vernissage guests – and besides the walls got painted. … more parallels followed, Andreas Roseneder founded together with the sculptor Rudolf Pinter “Der Turm” (tower) in the air traffic control tower at Trausdorf airport for the realization of artistic activities, Bernie Rieder led “Das Turm”-restaurant on the top floor of one of the Twin Towers in Vienna / Favoriten to a meeting place for gourmets. Such a lover of fine food just as well as cooking, is also the artist Adolf Tuma. He did his apprenticeship as a lithographer in the stamps department of the Austrian State Printshop and still works there in the stamps studio. His clients even included the postal administration of Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Kuwait, San Marino, the Schönbrunn Zoo and the National Park Donau Auen as well as the Austrian National Bank. His hands have portrayed Rosa Mayreder and Karl Landsteiner on the last five-hundred- and thousand-schilling notes. And so far, more than 100 stamps show Adolf Tuma’s ideas. “So many working hours flow into such a stamp.” Just recently he was awarded for the second time the “Yehudi Menuhin Trophy” for best musical stamp in the world. The artists Adolf “Hugo” Tuma and Andreas Roseneder met years ago on the island of Zakynthos, where Roseneder heads at the Sommerakademie Griechenland, acrylic painting classes. Despite differences in their artistic ambitions and different technical implementation, a friendship developed that unites them until today.

this painting in acrylic technique is the right part of a diptych called PLAY  –  the scene here showing chimpanzees playing paintball; – the not shown left scene is still in work – evoking human body parts painting interfered with handball scenes. –  a painting of remembrance to my youth became clear not as easy to realize as the real imagined chimpanzees! – interesting…  – but I hope a photo of the left part will follow soon!
