Alexander Steinwendtner - Random. Clean Cuts.

Category: Portrait 17. June 2011

Rather than expressing something directly, the force of artistic expressivity lies within manifesting the getting-to-talk within the work itself.

„I will now reveal the secret: I am talking about an important artist“ (Christian Ludwig Attersee)

Random. Clean Cuts. The works of the new series by the artist Alexander Steinwendtner contain an essential and fascinating quality of human endeavour, referred to as making art: precise artistic expression arises stems from an artistic attunement, not quite definable and therefore not attainable in an exact manner.

In other words, the artist is able to specify what falls to him and that art is not simply mastered, but in fact created. Quality, says Alexander Steinwendtner, arises from a time that he is somewhat unable to define. Therefore the artistic agenda is to venture into the undefined, in order to reach the concept.

In the exhibition „Random. Clean cuts.“, CastYourArt presents a series of new works by the Salzburg-based artist Alexander Steinwendtner. The works, paintings and objects are composed of wooden panels painted with varnish and oil, into which the artist applies precise sections – Clean Cuts. Due to the rigorous geometry generated by the placement of the cuts, the works display a fascinating spatial depth and a plasticity reminding of sculptures.

Alexander Steinwendtner completed his artistic education at the University for applied arts in Vienna. He was a pupil at the master class far painting, tapestry and animation film under the guidance of Christian Ludwig Attersee. His works have been on display in various solo and group exhibitions in Europe and the US. Alexander Steinwendtner lives in Salzburg and works in Adnet, in the former forge of a marble quarry.
