Startgalerie im MUSA Iris Nemecek – Jolly Roger 13.04.2012 – 16.05.2012 The Mediterranean and Matisse instead of the Caribbean and pirates By Wolfgang Pichler The first impression – and it is not belied here – is that it's all about the work of very colourful and bright pictures with great value laid on decoration. That a young artist appears to be successfully going her own way, in spite of the dangers of slipping into kitsch, distinguishes this delightful show. Plant fragments and cutout effective shadows thickly populate her acrylic pictures in different pastel tones. Although birds, monkeys and wild beasts are not to be seen, they could well inhabit the apparent Caribbean landscape. Pirates would also fit extremely well into such a fantastic backdrop, but they too, are not to be seen. In this respect, the appropriately named exhibition plays on the skull and crossbones flag. It doesn't deter from the enjoyment that such art is to be understood not without a certain well-meaning naivety. Not without good reason does one think of Henri Rousseau and his famous jungle pictures and/or also about the early Matisse in the years around 1910. A not insignificant parallel to Matisse is also the fact that the picture conception and talented composition are shown to great advantage and strength in the large format collages composed of coloured paper. The very impressive work is to be found in the show attached directly to the wall with drawing pins. The clear-cut borders and the unmixed colours of the coloured paper support the extremely buoyant, convivial mood of this successful composition. A pity that there aren't more of these truly convincing collages to be seen. Only on closer inspection, does it become apparent that these works are representational paintings or collages and it's certainly not the narrative quality that constitutes these oeuvres. On the contrary: more courage with abstraction would even heighten the impact of these works.
