Away from the postcard view, and the legacy of art history, I try to wrest the genre of landscape painting, a new perspective. Also, traffic signs, power lines, railroad tracks, contrails in the sky or telephone booths, so things that we want to avoid in our landscape shine, sometimes have a strange magic. It is an attempt to discover the man behind the track in a new landscape of beauty and poetry.
Hanno Karlhuber comes from the tradition of Surrealism and the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism (Class Prof. Rudolf Hausner, Academy of Fine Arts / Vienna). Characteristic in addition to the artistic message is to use a certain painting technique (glaze painting, mixed media), the detail, the portrayal of light and space in painting.
In the series “human traces ” Hanno Karlhuber used in his later work more a form of “magic realism” in order to the perception of ”LandscapeToday” a new perspective.
