Austrian painter Herbert Brandl has established himself as one of the most important representatives of contemporary painting with his large-format, gesturally expressive works. His paintings oscillate between abstraction and figuration, and observations of nature often form the focus for his works. His irrepressible creative process and a powerful and experimental use of color characterize his fascinating work. This catalogue documents Herbert Brandl’s exhibition Spirit Lead Me at Galerie nächst St. Stephan Rosemarie Schwarzwälder in Vienna. Hans Ulrich Obrist’s interview and the multifaceted essays by Cathérine Hug and Thomas D. Trummer enable readers to delve even deeper into Brandl’s fascinating work.
