Bramer. Fellin. Karlhuber.
Josef Bramer, Benedetto Fellin and Hanno Karlhuber paint in the old masters technique with meticulous precision without any shrill pathos. Works by these thoughtful loners and skilled students of Rudolf Hausner are shown at the Infeld Cultural Center in Dobrinj in the summer of 2018. Most of these works of art come from the Infeld Collection. Loans from the artists complement the exhibition.
As graduates of Rudolf Hausner's master class at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Josef Bramer, Benedetto Fellin and Hanno Karlhuber became highly skilled in the precise description of the subject and richly nuanced colorings. Their quiet, but urgent messages are designed by them with reliable know-how and knowledge without becoming slave to a fashion.
Josef Bramers' mirror image "Kaspar" seems to depict someone lost in a dream who does not pay attention to our present. On closer inspection, one can see the criticism: the idyll represented is deceptive, the tree in the picture is soon without leaves.
Benedetto Fellin presents the experiences of traveling in the Far East. He succeeded in conveying the thought processes of Buddhism with a European way of expression - the age-old technique of glazing.
The marks of humans on the landscape occupies Hanno Karlhuber, who lives in Austria and Thailand. His view of the world is not characterized by longing for beauty. He is concerned with the painful interventions in nature, which humans leave behind.
