221110: Galerie Augustin – Vienna Udo Lindenberg

Galerie Augustin – Vienna Udo Lindenberg 05.11.10 – 27.11.10 Boobs and envy-emancipation How can a successful artist arouse sympathy instead of envy - other than by spreading details about his faux pas in the yellow press? Success arouses envy, while failure triggers sympathy: but how can one remain successful and not be exposed to resentment? After having seen Udo Lindenberg’s aquarelles and acrylic paintings in the Galerie Augustin one is relieved to find that there is a way out of the dilemma: by switching the discipline. As a painter, Udo Lindenberg is not obliged to be good, because the good of his painting is his personal signature. If Lindenberg would be a good painter one would have to envy him twice. However, his paintings prove that musicians offer numerous clichés a broad spectrum. For example the cliché of melon-sized breasts and their inspiration; or the cliché of the insatiable female object in the world of art – the mentioned large boobs as well as always present feminine lasciviousness, and the copulation shown in “At work” stirs up sympathy for men and how difficult its must be for them to deal with these “hot crevices”. Cliché number three: something one can’t paint can easily be written onto the picture. Cliché number four deals with the questions of filling a picture and that a true artist is able to reinvent the wheel. Cliché five deals with alcohol’s ability to sharpen ones perception of reality. Cliché number six: the artist’s presence on his paintings is indispensible, except on X-Mas paintings, and if the figure is not charming one can even attest the artist self-irony and a minimal portion of vanity. It would be wrong to be envious of broadly presented clichés, and that’s what makes Lindenberg’s exhibition so liberating and insightful. He who really wants to be envious of really good painting will have to satisfy himself with the Art History Museum, but might console himself with the idea that artists displayed in the Art History Museum might have been envious of successful musicians. We eagerly await Lady Gaga’s paintings.
