Liliane Tomasko: Evening Wind

April 1st – July 24th, 2022

Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center announces a new exhibition ‘Evening Wind’ by contemporary painter Liliane Tomasko (b. 1967, Zurich). The exhibition takes its title from Edward Hopper’s 1921 masterful etching of a woman who has awoken in the cross-hatched black of night, as if from a bad dream. The bed is a recurring trope that Edward Hopper (1882-1967) returned throughout his career. “This is also the central site of inspiration for Tomasko for this exhibition and an entry point for her excavations of dreams that reach towards an understanding of the very nature of being,” says exhibition curator Faye Fleming, projects director of the Sean Scully Studio in Tappan, NY.

DRAGO PERSIC

CONTEMPORARY ART AT ANGELIKA KAUFFMANN MUSEUM
SALON ANGELIKA

›The Cowboy And The Titmouse‹

March 11th – April 17th, 2022

The Angelika Kauffmann Museum opens its doors to contemporary art every spring with the ›salon angelika‹ exhibition series. The painter Drago Persic, who grew up in Schwarzenberg and Dornbirn, is the first guest to show his works.

Drago Persic’s paintings are based on precisely staged collages of deconstructed photographs and found footage. They refer to cinematic scenes and are fully orchestrated in their structure – light, objects, actors, perspectives and constellations. Persic’s works are documentations of a sculpture in the making and record the sculptural process through painting. Persic’s painterly practice concentrates down to the smallest detail on each individual color pigment, which appears as a whole on the canvas as the most colorful black or the purest blue. The possibility and impossibility of paintability and ultimately the visibility of motif and color represent the challenge for him as an artist, which he accepts with passion.
