181010: Galerie Ulysses Rudi Stanzel - .and white.

Galerie Ulysses Rudi Stanzel - .and white. 22.09.10 - 16.10.10 Absolute understatement Rudi Stanzel’s current exhibition shows pictures, which, from several aspects, awaken one's interest in fundamental things. Here, themes such as line, color (or rather “non-color”), and their application on the canvas, are covered from A to Z. At first glance, Rudi Stanzel’s pictures are like a template for Zen meditation. Briefly, and without reflection, that which is to be seen exposes itself and appears as the most sensible approach to these very calm pictures. When you do succeed in recanting everything you know and simply follow the scratches and shadows in the white colors and observe the light and its reflection on the canvas - only then do you realize the true quality of these pictures. “Seeing” is stimulated here, consciously perceived without needing to be described. The light-flooded attic premises of the Gallery Ulysses also fit the bill; the works in white with grey accents need much light to reveal their true impact. These fascinating pictures would appear rather boring and lacking in nuance if they were to be presented in a badly lit room. The pictures of the 1958 born artist can confidently be described as an understatement: there are works of high quality with intensely restrained appearances, which only reveal their singularity to those who are willing to accept it. Admittedly, such paintings will always have only a limited public because even on the most beautiful autumn day, these congenial, unpretentious pictures would not be suitable in a living room or as an eye-catcher in some lawyer’s office – and that’s a good thing!
