In his paintings, Georg Frauenschuh (*1979) confronts the viewer with discontinuous surfaces composed of various motifs and pictorial spaces. For this, the Salzburg-born artist draws on various photographs as well as freely usable stock photos and clipart motifs, whose essence lies in reproduction and indistinguishability. Painterly, however, these are now upgraded to unique specimens. In turbulent appropriation, the painter understands them as set pieces of apparently not yet 5nally decided compositions. – Niklas Koschel
