a star potographer´s work thrown on canvas in a special lightprint technique: a perfect art of presentation for Ferry Nielsen´s portraits I am seduced to call “face scapes” face to face with the landscapes in these portraits of stars done for several covers of magazines & international publicity agencies – see them at the exhibition FERRY NIELSEN – BORN TO BE A SUPERSTAR, Burgenlaendische Landesgalerie in Eisenstadt, Austria until end of August.

one of the best arguments  to change abstract work in painting  to a so-called “realistic” way ever announced by a professional painter I found in the catalogue of the exhibition Lebendversuch / Experimentation in Vivo by artist Jonas Burgert from Berlin at the Kunsthalle Krems, Austria: “ninety percent of the work consists in avoiding painting figuratively. but I want to use ninety percent of the work offensively, not defensively. and so I said to myself: content has to return. but the quality of abstract painting, the timeless validity, has to be maintained.”

here we go! – towards the 4 towers next the virtual Cosmopolitan Garden – “Kosmopolitischer Garten” des Europahaus Burgenland

verwundert frage ich mich, warum in “unserer” region die ehrwuerdige provinz Pannonia,  dieses roemisch-politische konstrukt, ein mehr als jahrtausend altes logo des roemisch-kolonialen machtwillens, dermaßen lebendig hochgehalten wird, & warum diese fragwuerdig freiwillige unterwerfung sogar mit kulturell reminiszenten architekturen & gar schaupielerisch unterstuetzten wiederbelebungsversuchen der alten legionshauptstadt Carnuntum inszeniert wird. – & erfaßt von dieser verwunderung frage ich mich neuerdings zusaetzlich, warum der cast zu diesem niederoesterreichisch-burgenlaendischen schauspiel nicht in harten Sesterzen, sondern in labilen Euros ausbezahlt wird.

…he gives five ploughshares…

…to soil –

– then four shadows thrown –  earth to earth:

& finally the crossing shadow of an imaginary fifth tower

“…zwei Jahre später… endlich fertig!”

the special stamp “200th Anniversary of the Birth of Franz Liszt”  (first day of issue 29.01.2011, artwork:  Silvia Moucka) ennobles with first-day-of-issue-postmark a special postcard edited by Austrian philatelists (initiated by Dr. Herbert Simon) – showing my watercoloured hommage to Henri Lehmann´s portrait of Franz Liszt painted in 1839

“This power to subjugate, to uplift, to carry & let fall an audience, is a power that is not be encountered to such a high degree in any other artist with the exeption of Paganini. However, what is most difficult is to speak about this art itself. It is no longer the playing of the piano in this or that manner, but rather the expression of an audacious character altogether whose fate it is to dominate, to prevail, instead of being the perilous tool of the peaceful in art” – Robert Schuman marveling about Franz Liszt

detail/working process – an attempt to create a watercolour-painted synaesthetic portrait of the nowadays as Austrian claimed composer Franz / Ferencz  Liszt by fusing his physiognomy & hands. (Hungarian heart, but not tongue: Although he became an ardent Hungarian nationalist, Liszt grew up speaking German and was unable to speak much Hungarian. Liszt adopted French as his eventual language of preference.)

zum schreibstilvergleich meiner manuskripte per mausklick verleitet (vom russen Dmitry Chestnykh entwickelt & auf der F.A.Z.-site fuer jeden schreibenden oder lesenden nutzbar), gab ich der reihe nach die 7 auf meiner website publizierten kurzgeschichten ein. wer mag, kann sie im vergleich in gleicher folge wie die HTML-zertifikate oben hier lesen.

zuerst semiologisch enttaeuschendes wie dann doch den quicken literalsinn unterhaltendes ergebnis: 7 verschiedene autoren von psychoanalytiker Siegmund Freud bis Deutscher-Buchpreis-gewinnerin Melinda Nadj Abonji standen pate zum schreibstil René Desors. daraufhin stille – fragen an mich als kreator selbst:

sind René Desors geschichten stillos? – schier unvergleichbar?

oder ist mein eigen schrift mit René Desor als zeichnenden autor gar schizotym stilimmanent geworden?

 

daraufhin ohne antwort & frustriert gab ich die HTML-ergebnisse fuer die web-veroeffentlichung der erhaltenen zertifikate ein – & erhielt damit einheitlich folgendes ergebnis:

HTML GOETZ – welch schoenes alias fuer literarische publikationen!

PS:. lieber Rainald, verzeih´mir bitte,  dass ich der impertinenz der journaille auf den leim gegangen bin! – aber ich denk´ & hoff´ zumindest, dass  ich mir nach dieser webperformance nicht mehr die stirne vor versammelter jury in Klagenfurt blutig schneiden muss!

helping to deliver some hay for horses to Kleylehof (no borders, no nations, no governments), Nickelsdorf, Austria, I took the chance to visit sculptor Franz Gyolcs living & working there next Hungarian border like an hermit.

Franz still (see post from 2007 here) works on his stonewalls around the arena he finished this summer in front of his studio: “will be the last day, it´too cold in the meantime.”

Franz Gyolcs

proudly he shows his technique of laying the stones without cement: “at least I handle every stone seven times”

“it accomodates around 500 people”, he tells

Franz Gyolcs, master of Kleylehof: “I do not know how to call it – has the form of an egg – the origin of all – is it landart?”

Franz opens for us his gallery with wooden sculptures

“Trotzki” pokes its nose into the “death” behind “angel”

& finally admires the “angel”
