A Retrospective. 1966 - 1996 - 2019

24.03. - 22.09.2019

The Museum Angerlehner is showing a cross section of the artistic work of two Upper Austrian draftsmen, Othmar Zechyr and Johann Jascha:
Zechyr's landscapes, agricultural and machine cities, stencilscapes, flying objects, mountain and hay formations, letters, calligraphies, 'wildly-romantic' landscapes and works from the cycle 'Alexander Battle' with pen and ink, colored chalk and etching;
Jascha's action photos and works on paper, from the figurative drawings of the strict 'heads' and dynamic drawings with graphite of the 1970s to the abstract and 'complex' works with coloured pencil, tempera and acrylic and the black and white 'space lines'.
One finds nature and technology, catastrophes and meditative abstraction in Zechyr, expressive physical gestures and sensual, erotic drawing, both figurative and abstract, in Jascha. Eighty percent of the works on display come from the Angerlehner Collection.
Zechyr and Jascha were friends and companions. Zechyr participated as a draftsman, controversial discussion partner and inspired musician during some of the sixteen memorable symposia Jascha organised between 1969 and 2007. With a focus on drawing, these meetings helped the medium of drawing to flourish again in the land of Klemens Brosch and Alfred Kubin. At the Museum Angerlehner, the two are reunited, their works shown in two parallel exhibitions.

28.04. – 14.07.2019

The Museum Angerlehner presents the exhibition NEON by Alex Kiessling in the SALON (* 1980). The artist is showing selected works from his series, SHIFT.
The classic portrait is dissolved. Kiessling displaces the picture plane and restratifies its layers, creating a transparent, permeable image. Contemplating these images reveals the fleetingness of the moment.
The mostly large-format acrylic paintings are the result of a combination of traditional craftsmanship with the perspectives and views of a new, increasingly digital world.
Alex Kiessling studied painting at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. In addition to numerous solo and group exhibitions in Austria, he has shown his works in galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Shanghai and beyond. Many of his paintings are held in private collections around the world.


24.02.– 22.09.2019

The Museum Angerlehner presents new works by the Upper Austrian artists Lena Göbel and Maria Moser in an exciting and diverse dialogue. Numerous works come directly from the artists' studio and are on show for the first time.
Göbel's creates archaic-looking figures, people and animals processed in a painterly manner using her preferred medium, woodcut. Moser prefers an abstract painting style of powerful gestures and works mostly in large, expansive formats.
Both artists have mastered their techniques, showing a deep understanding of how to deal playfully with the language of print and paint despite their monumentality and weight. Theirs is an expressive handwriting that seems unmistakable and authentic.
The exhibition provides an experience rich with impressions.
