New Emerging Artist at Blue Bee Gallery
The artwork of Stefan Finsinger focuses on a minimalist style. Always including an abstract pattern in harsh black and white with a colourful element. Sometimes, these patterns are geometric sequences transformed into a three-dimensional shape. The colourful elements are in the background or reduced to a limited area of the painting. Even so, they always fight to become the centre of attention.
Artists like Piet Mondrian, Paul Klee, Damian Hirst and Biggs and Collings influenced Stefan's art. He admires their minimal, abstract and patterned art. In art school, Stefan trained across several artistic techniques. Nowadays, he concentrates on digitalised and edited fine liner paintings. The artworks on display are from his current collection of limited edition prints.
>> The pattern of life and the struggles how we compresence our existence influenced my art. New insights are crafted from both simple and complex layers, but always imperfect.
The imperfection in the pattern should reflect on the imperfection of life, but it shouldn’t be the main focal point of the picture. <<
These patterns remind on scribbles in a meditative mindset. We live in a fast-moving, attention seeking culture. A simple repetitive task may be exactly what we need to recharge. The colourful elements elevate the artwork into a new dimension. It give the artwork another level of interpretation. Meanings include LGBT references, psychological power and the rise of a new life.
Although the artwork shines with simplicity, the message isn’t. Art doesn’t need to shout and deal with controversial issues to have a meaning. It’s estimated, that we get bombarded by around 4,000 – 10,000 adverts every day. Our walls don't necessary have to shout at us as well to remind us of the transported message of the artist.
