Baselitz · Förg · Rainer

Galerie Richard Ruberl is showing prints by Georg Baselitz, Günther Förg and Arnulf Rainer from 10 May to 9 June.

For Arnulf Rainer, drypoint is the optimal way to express his constant search for perfection. He uses the same plate again and again until he reaches the possible complete obscuration.

As early as the 1960s, Georg Baselitz used the graphic's own materiality and effect to translate the motifs of his painted pictures, especially the aggressive iconography of his early paintings, into graphic signs, thus shifting attention from the content to the process of finding form.

In his painterly work, Günther Förg resists the preceding orthogonality of avant-gardists such as Modrian or later Sol LeWitt and moves in the interplay between composed order and informal independence. The use of colors and forms, such as grid compositions and abstract representations of nature and landscape, are also characteristic of him in printmaking.

In the exhibition PRINTMAKING, the works of Georg Baselitz, Günther Förg and Arnulf Rainer meet with their different realization of graphic art forms.
