The Art of Line


 

The Art of Line (Subversivit├Ąt der Linie) offers a unique opportunity to see how contemporary European artists are approaching the medium of drawing. The nine artists in the exhibition, all from Austria's easternmost state of Lower Austria, demonstrate the variety and dimension of drawing. Themes range from landscape and botanical studies to figure drawing and technology, while approaches encompass traditional mediums to new graphic techniques. The nine artists include the doyen of Lower Austria drawing, Karl Korab, with his impressive charcoal drawings of the beautiful Waldviertel region, where the landscape transitions from forests to vineyards. The other artists include Martina Golser, Christina Starzer, Moussa Kone, Leopold Kogler, Gunter Damisch, Gerhard Kaiser, Robert Kabas and Gerlinde Thuma.
