Karin Ziegelwanger (kazi)

Austrian artist, Karin Ziegelwanger, describes her particular creative technique as collage painting“ and „art without paint“. During her studies at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (Universität für angewandte Kunst), she was already addressing the fast-moving, abundant and artificial nature of the world of glossy magazines and leaned on this to develop her own individual style of „collage painting“. An entirely unique and personal technique, she uses Q-tips and turpentine to dissolve the colours extracted from the magazines without resorting to external colouring agents. Simply by smearing and shifting the already existing printed colour, Karin Ziegelwanger creates her own world of images which allows the viewer to discover multiple levels of interpretation that fascinate both in terms of content and form. In the same way that a stone skims the surface of water and creates ripples, the artist creates shifts within the printed pages of the magazine. She succeeds in mixing these, producing new organic colour structures, and reducing, condensing and joining these together.
The fast-moving pace and richness of the world of glossy magazines therefore undergoes a complete metamorphosis. Through her art, Karin Ziegelwanger addresses the transience of all forms. Her personal motives are developed from the mass production which is characteristic of glossy magazines. Time and form are put into perspective, thus „I“ is discovered and conserved in „We“. In this way, the ever-increasing mass of images issuing from the world of magazines become (once again) unique.

Hi Karin
Congratulations on a good range in your Artdoxa Gallery, I particularly like your series of ten abstract landscapes "Und Auberdem" they are modern with good color combinations and very good compositions. You will do very well as a professional artist.
Keep up the great work
