The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition 24/7 (10.23.2020 – 3.7.2021) at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.
The in the exhibition 24/7 shown works from Herbert Brandl clarify his fundamental artistic approach to painting. Painting is examined here not only in terms of its nature and its circumstances, but rather as one medium among many, which in addition to fundamental compositional and tactical considerations, leads to an interest in the intermediate. The accompanying publication includes Brandl’s artistic orientation and positioning lie in his ongoing preoccupation with art, and his special attention in conceptual strategies for dealing with painting. Furthermore, a thoroughly emotional and intuitive play with criteria associated with the medium, such as composition, hatching, texture, etc., in the concrete painting process inspires Brandl’s incredible feeling for colorfulness and depth to the finished work.
studied under Herbert Tasquil and Peter Weibel at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna. From 2004 to 2019 Brandl was a professor at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. His works have been shown at the Biennale de Paris (1985), the São Paulo Art Biennale (1989), Documenta IX (1992), Kunsthalle Basel (1999), the Neue Galerie in the Künstlerhaus Graz (2002), Deichtorhallen, Hamburg (2009) and the Albertina, Vienna (2011), among others. In 2007 Brandl represented Austria at the Venice Biennale.
