GOTTFRIED HELNWEIN Irish and Other Landscapes

3 July–4 September 2004

Continuing the Crawford Gallery´s theme of documenting the landscape, internationally renowned artist Goffried Helnwein will exhibit a number of large-scale (some are of seven metres in length), photo-realist canvases depicting landscape. Helnwein divides his time between Co. Tipperary and Los Angeles and his paintings draw upon the sublimity and drama of these contrasting environments as well as revealing the parallels of Irish and American terrains.

Perhaps more recognised as a painter of highly emotive portraits, this exhibition will reveal the influence of landscape throughout his career from the early Vienna cityscapes to the present series of Irish landscapes and recognises the impact in which the German romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) has had on Helnwein´s work. In addition four new smaller scale canvases will also be on view. A full colour catalogue with an essay by Mic Moroney will accompany the exhibition

Gottfried Helnwein, (born in Vienna in 1948), is a formidable artist and his work has often been seen as controversial because it functions as moral probes. He continually reveals affecting issues within his work practice.

He has exhibited extensively at key venues throughout the world and is currently preparing for a one-man show at the Fine Arts Museums, San Francisco (July 31 2004 – January 16 2005) and will have a retrospective exhibition at the China National Museum of Fine Arts, Beijing in 2005.
