"Breathing Papers"

Opening: Tuesday, 18.01.2011, 19:00 Uhr
Exhibition length: 19.01.2011 – 12.02.2011

Christa Mayrhofer, who studied art in Linz and Vienna, has been working with multicolored prints on handmade paper since 1993.

Into these prints she works Words and Fragments of texts, which touch her emotionally, and these personal sentiments, that are triggered by innermost memories and the emotions connected to them.
The range of displayed Texts varies enormously from for example old italian arias to an article from a swiss regional newspaper, in which a farmer caressly expresses the love to his cow.

None of these influences are completely arbitrary though, as another main focus of her work lies in typography and the overall aesthetics of the displayed letters and pieces of text.
All of these things form beautiful puzzles, that leave the watcher completely dazzled and can invoke emotions from far back .
