rosenfeld porcini is proud to present ‘the hardcore of beauty’, an inaugural uk solo exhibition of austrian painter robert muntean.
muntean’s paintings have a formal complexity built up from multiple layers of applied paint, yet without a build up of material the surface remains uniform and flat whilst revealing a great depth. his formal approach includes a wide variety of hues and shades often of the same colour – in particular his use of green.
muntean’s narrative, whilst always basing itself around the human figure, varies quite considerably from historical figures, cinematic characters to rock musicians.
the artist himself considers this exhibition to be his most musical. there is a harmony and rhythm in the final works in how he applies the paint, which resonates with the dynamism and shading of a musical score.
