Das Kolorit: An Opening at the Austrian Cultural Forum

  • Austrian Cultural Forum 3524 International Court Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

I am honored to be the American woman in this internationally focused 4 person show.


There is no unifying theory of painting. Manifestos, if they still exist, are not what they used to be. Nor are assemblies or encounters with strangers. Surveys of 'capital p' PAINTING suggest that color is important nowadays. Tropics are topical. Monochromes are not monolithic end-alls. A rainbow of monochromes is on the receding née approaching horizon. Domestic themes are in but domesticity, per se, is out. Is it nostalgia? Is it about travel? What do signs say and how are they colored? What do colors say - how do they signify? And what about books?

No matter. 2017. Here we are: two Americans and two Austrians; all of us who make paintings;all of us who use color; brought together by one of us who makes books.


Curated by Markus Kircher, this exhibition will feature recent work by Daniel Domig, Markus Kircher, Suzy Kopf, and Champneys Taylor. The show will present four different takes on painting. Painting as a medium of freedom and concentration shows itself from its variable and curious side; from figuration to abstraction.
