The artist Martha Jungwirth is receiving her first solo presentation at the Albertina Museum. Individual key works, as well as groups of works presented as series, afford a fascinating look into the wide-ranging oeuvre of this Viennese painter, who was born in 1940.
Jungwirth alternates constantly between abstract and figurative painting from her vantage point at the interface between the two. This exhibition spans a temporal arc from early masterpieces to her most recent output, which is being publicly presented here for the first time.
Since her beginnings as an artist, Jungwirth has valued paper as a medium for paintings that include numerous large-format watercolours. Her works also stand out for their unique colour combinations, which serve to convey her highly sensitive perception of reality.
