AT SECOND GLANCE
1st May to 2nd August 2015 / FF- Museum Kunst & Kultur Groß St. Florian
Keen interest was shown by scores of visitors to the exhibit entitled ‘At Second Glance’. The event launches a successful series of exhibits by FF- Museum Kunst & Kultur Groß Sankt Florian, featuring unusual impressions and details of the museum’s history of events. For the second time, works are on display originating with artists who had been featured in solo shows at the Kunst & Kultur museum in the last twenty years, including Gregor Traversa, Helga Chibidziura, Gerald Brettschuh, Kitty Ackermann, Ernst Fuchs, Ernestine Faux and numerous others.
IN THE NAME OF COLOUR
Ganggalerie St. Salvator, Graz / Opening on 24th April 2013
Under the motto of ‘IN THE NAME OF COLOUR’ Graz artist EF invited the public to an exhibit opening at the Ganggalerie of the St. Salvator Church. The artist was accompanied by Richard Schieder (Kultkultur) and Hans Perstling (Graz University College of Teacher Education). Perstling described two large-format paintings on display in the church’s modern-style nave with the following words: ‘At the same time, depending on how one wishes to see it, the coloured shapes appear to both delineate and to connect and bring forth an expression of life, the way it is both in life and with the message of the liturgy. A work of art would seem to be effective when it succeeds in building a bridge between the artist’s message, the work’s colour language and the individual viewing it.’ More than 100 visitors had the opportunity to physically sense the connection of colour, heaven and earth, through an instrumental musical ‘performance’ of the works.
BEYOND THE CLOUDS
GRAZ AIRPORT GALLERY 2011
The exhibit entitled BEYOND THE CLOUDS (ÜBER DEN WOLKEN) was officially opened by Feldkirchen Mayor Adolf Pellischek, Andrea Wolfmayr from the Cultural Affairs Bureau of the City of Graz and Robert Angerbauer of the Graz Thalerhof Airport. Visitors thronged into the foyer on the second floor of the Graz Airport Gallery, with collectors as well as a group of the artist’s fans and her friends and family attending the opening event. Andrea Wolfsmayr described an arc spanning the Graz suburb of Feldkirchen and Asia: originating from Feldkirchen, the artist left to spend over 20 years of her life abroad. Wolfsmayr pointed out the inspiring quality of participating in distant cultures with another way of life, a factor that has strongly influenced the artist and her works. The common thread running through the paintings of E. Faux on exhibit is provided by the colour moods, the studies and moods of the sky as well as chromatic reminiscences of a strange, freer, exotic world in places such as Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Bali. Most of the large-format works invite viewers to stop and gaze as if themselves travellers to these points. It is up to the viewers and their ability to surrender to the interplay of colours presented by the paintings, to stop for more than a moment and perhaps discover a sense of self-awareness.
GALERIE C. STEINER / SEPT. 2008
Curator and artist Manfred Makra opens the exhibit KLIM ART ZONEN with the words: ‘Could you say it this way? Ernestine Faux’s works possess a beauty that is allied with a lasting element. This by itself allows her to take up with her works a position at a distance from popular, fleeting trends of the modern Zeitgeist, inviting us on a journey to discover things existentially transcendent. The colour scheme of her paintings appears to be largely determined by the sensory qualities of the colours, by their “conscious presence” and “lasting” quality.’ The numerous guests in attendance equally enjoyed the works of art as well as conversing with the artist, who had travelled from Graz for the event.
Galerie Weberhaus Weiz, Austria / 4th to 26th October 2007
Georg Köhler, Culture Officer of the City of Weiz, opens the KLIM ART ZONEN exhibit. ‘As I observe the changing mood of the sky, or light reflected in the cold, rain, mist, the moon or brilliant sunlight, nature reveals to me new colours that I then apply layer for layer to the canvas. In this way I discover new relationships and encounters with colour, exploring the influences and effects of combining atypical or harmonic hues. Scientists at John Hopkins University claim to have discovered the colour of the light pervading the universe: a pale turquoise. But wherever I look here on earth, infinite permutations of colour waiting to be painted reveal themselves to me. E. Faux
SHAPE – COLOUR – SOUND
RUDOLF PICHLER / ERNESTINE FAUX / April 2006
‘The exhibit entitled SHAPE – COLOUR – SOUND (FORM – FARBE – KLANG) brings together two Styrian artists, R. Pichler (sculpture) and E. Faux (painting), who find a common harmony,’ museum director Hannes Weinelt observed, noting the affinity the two artists share for less familiar Asian cultures. Curator Anja Weisi Michelitsch: ‘Ernestine Faux spent many years in Asia and acquired an entirely novel awareness of colour that allows her to build bridges between sound and colour.’ German cellist R. Baubkus provided an improvisation that aptly expressed this harmony in tonal terms.
