About the Artist

www.georgpinteritsch.com

“In certain situations, out of a certain uneasiness, I kneed together fragments, scuffed from tickets or bills. They are in my pockets and I warp them in a way, that the particles take new forms. Finally I roll them into small balls and start over again. Everything happens unconsciously, detached from any judgement. When I become aware of this activity, I often examine the objects that were produced. Mostly they are annoying sausages that I throw somewhere. I’m interested in this unconscious creative aspect, which I constantly try to emulate in the process of drawing. The drawn line, which separates surfaces and forms, is the most important point. It determines position and composition, separates diverse surfaces and is the fundamental building block of my work. To me, it is important the pictures propose a hidden order created by the subjects. My works tell stories of odd rituals and remote places strung together by an invisible web of lines and shape-constructions. The landscapes in the pictures represent both the world the subjects move in and independent, detached locations. Dystopian inter-worlds, different levels of reality, shifts in space-time, a distrustful glance over the shoulder, and a reoccurring sense of descent… Lost in limbo but not quite free of irony.” – Georg Pinteritsch
