060709: Galerie Gerersdorfer: Ramona Proyer – Début

Galerie Gerersdorfer: Ramona Proyer – Début Lonely creatures and crazy architecture With her first solo exhibition “Début”, Ramona Proyer proves that she is a talented painter with potential – even if –especially her picture composition and colouring scheme – seem somewhat immature. Her large oil paintings always depict a person either without a facial expression or turned away in a room or a landscape - and are something like a citation of romanticism in their distanced superficiality. Just think of Caspar David Friedrich’s “Wanderer übers Nebelmeer” (1818). But at the same time they are also – not quite illogical – their antithesis. Here the lonely figures are not glorified, but they are what they are: lost and insignificant in a sterile environment reminding of computer games. The possibly dangerous tricks utlized by the young artist – in the tradition of romantic irony – to break the smooth worlds, are those of applying a false perspective and an erratic space continuum. Proof that she can master these tricks is the 135 by 165 cm large oil painting titled “Simulacrum”, in which she subtly lets the shadows fall differently than expected and implies pillars on the wall by painting their empty bases on the ground. The strength of her works lies in these slightly crazy rooms and the somewhat spooky superficiality of the paintings. It is clearly not a coincidence that her works remind of her nearly same-aged gallery colleague Robert Muntean.
