Die erste Mondlandung – Jazz ist Kunst | 2021
Born in 1986 and a graduate of Christian Ludwig Attersee’s master class, Adrian Szaal’s brush-stroke, his expressive, painterly gesture may remind the beholder of the art informel at first glance; however the artist has never decided to entirely forgo the figurative element.
Using different painting tools on a variety of image carriers, primarily applying the self-designed, newly invented “free colour” (pouring) and “slides” (palette knife) techniques, mostly in acrylic, Szaal plays with the specific characteristics of the medium of painting as well as photography.
The artist’s main goal has always been the eradication of the arbitrary within his body of work: In a consciously directed process of exploring the physical and psychological capabilities and constraints of the visual perception apparatus, which exerts decisive influence – if not determining every aspect of the art work at all levels – and during which Szaal pushes the envelope, light itself as a medium plays a key role (especially its ultraviolet range):
In the creative act and process of looking, the experience of the artworks is constantly updated by dint of the interaction of the principles and effects of additive and subtractive colour mixing.
