Heimo Wallner

Monday, January 24 - Thursday, February 10, 2005

   

Beginning on January 24, 2005, Austrian artist Heimo Wallner will begin transforming the bare, fourteen-foot high walls of the Hampden Gallery lobby into a drawing installation populated by his signature linear figures. Wallner's figures are muscled in an exaggerated fashion as if the artist has chosen to show us the strength and vulnerability of these figures in one fell swoop. Wallner's figures are not passive models - they stomp across the wall seemingly full of anger and aggression. At times, Wallner's figures can be seen on the prowl with a pack of wolf-like companions replete with razor sharp teeth - but more often than not, the figures seem isolated and alone. Set in a framework of puzzle-like geometric shapes, the gestalt of Wallner's drawing installation forms a multi-layered narrative over-flowing with humor, insight, and possibility. Wallner was born in Salzburg, Austria in 1961, He studied sculpture at the Vienna Academy of Art and has shown his work in Croatia, Italy, Mexico, throughout the U.S. - most recently at The International Print Center in New York City.
