Solo presentation by Sarah Mühlbacher at Elektrohalle Salon.
In the Elektrohalle Salon the Linz-based artist Sarah Mühlbacher (*1999) presents works, of which are all situated in a tension field between personal originated motifs and a self-distancing work process. The private themes are basically characterized by a silent, settled impression. Often spatially and perspectivally intertwined by mirrored images, wich are the expression of a subjectivity that processually explores the medial dialectic of photography and painting within the framework of analytical procedures. The starting point for the oil paintings, aquarelles, and printed works in Mühlbacher’s oeuvre is always at first the photograph.
In art history, the relationship between painting and photography has always been reciprocal since the beginnings of the photographic medium.
