Atelier Yin Yang, samlingsutställning med konstnärer från Graz, Österike, 4-10 aug

Posted on aug 1, 2017 in Tidigare

13 artists from the Austrian association Atelier Yin Yang. Open every day 11-19. Exhibition open until August 10.

”Mobility has always been a part of the artistic practice of the Austrian association “Atelier Yin Yang”. Our artistic work, hence, involves experiencing and processing new impressions, living cultural exchange, and continuously shifting personal attitudes and perspectives.

Art has a universal language

Art ignores geographical and cultural borders.

Art inspires and enriches, builds bridges, creates new contacts, vitalizes, and pacifies.”

At present Stockholm has become target of our cultural exchange. In times when borders are getting closed, people are moving closer together, fears of the unknown are demagogical stocked, we focus on open minds, creative curiosity, and cultural contact.

13 artists of the association Yin Yang coming from Graz, Austria, will present their work in the Galleri Bellman and will host the exhibition for one week, looking forward to getting the possibility to forge artistic links, and to visit Stockholm´s famous sights.”

Mesi List:

“The line, the surface, the colour, and the shape – the elements of drawing, are enclosed into my thoughts when acting. The implementation of my work derives from nature, my mental state, and my thoughts.”


Beate Rüsch. Born at Dornbirn, Austria. Has lived in Graz for 15 years, and previously three years in Vienna, Austria.

“Since 2004 intensive occupation with acrylic, lacquer, and oil painting, as well as mixing techniques. Participation in courses of renowned artists. Numerous exhibitions at Acrylic colorsl Graz, Vienna, Dornbirn, Weiz, Rust, Tallin, and Bologna.”


Gabriele Reisenhofer. Alongside her professional career, since 2008 she has intensely occupied herself with arts, getting more and more fascinated by experimental painting. The artist applies techniques and materials without restrictions. Layer by layer she creates interesting bases involving various materials like sand, iron, powdered stone, wax, bitumen and collagen.


Günter A.Edlinger. Image conception sensibilizes one’s particular cognition. Günter A. Edlinger generates ideas for his pictures originating from his personal imaginations or by a conscious abstraction process deriving from concrete drafts (nude drawings, photographs or natural studies), allowing two-dimensionally arranged pictures to arise. Reality is transformed in order to allow its better understanding.



Ella Türk. Born and grown up at Bruck a.d. Mur, Austria, studies at Graz (German philology and Anglistics), employed as a teacher (now retired). She occupied herself intensively with philosophy and psychology, and attended artistic courses in order to learn different techniques in drawing and painting, ceramics, and sculpting.

Numerous broad cultural journeys as well as visits of art museums and galleries in and outside Europe. Lives in Sweden and Austria.


Siegi Kleindienst. The artist works with a lot of different techniques and materials, focusing on experimental works, at the moment her art work predominantly shows rust painting techniques, various mixing techniques as well as photography, and sculptural work. A lot of the artist’s motifs involve messages “memento mori”, the cycle of becoming, of being, of fading, of leaving one’s marks, and of becoming aware of it; these are themes of the artist, which continuously reoccur.


Erwin Schwentner. Autodidactic artist, predominantly sculptures (ceramics), since 1982 exhibitions and participations in exhibitions in Austria and other countries. Study trips combined with exhibitions in Italy, Taiwan, Japan, Peru, Bosnia, Viktor Fogarassy-Paris.

“Schwenter is cruel and pleasant at the same time. Cruel, when his scalpel cuts deeply into the layers of stereotypy, pleasant, when the scalpel arrives the living meat but the mortal stab does not occur”. Schwentner rather affects the humorous, paradoxical side, the distortion, which much better than force effects corrosion.”


Roland Leiner. Since 1974 trained in sign painting, panoramic painting, and theatrical scenic painting. Since 1985 his preferred theme is the human figure. Since 2000 freelance artist.

Exhibitions in Austria, Italy and Slovenia

Other: theatre productions, circus school, artistry, and clownery.

Co-founder of the association “Atelier Yin Yang – association for fine arts”.


Klaus Gmoser. Klaus Gmoser sees in his acts a search, a research, which is time and again beyond his personal grasp: an intangible alternative draft to the desert of an exclusively rational and objective adaptation of the world.

From his point of view the painting process aims at dealing with the un-sayable, the un-nameable. Painting is an exercise carried out by touching, by entering into response with this what is existing (at the moment), internally as well as externally.


Ingeborg Plepelits. From the beginning the artist has been focusing on graphic techniques as well as acrylics. Monotypes and similar techniques indulge her passion to playfully create orders and systems. The present acts deal with space, origin, and cosmos.

Exhibitions since 1992. Two participation at the ARTexpo, New York (Austrian Pavilion), USA; Austrian consulate general Krakow, PL; Egyptian cultural institute Vienna; international biennial Bettona, I; old town hall Maribor/ Nova Gorizia, SLO (abstract).


Josef Niederl. Born in Eastern Styria, Austria. Civil engineer, lives and works in Graz.

“In the focus of Josef Niederl’s pictorial-graphic work there is the person, momentarily presented in an endless number of facets and manifestations, in motion or circuited by the painter himself, so that the sketchily formed figurations on the sheets seemingly become redoubled and increased in numbers leading to diverse drafted aspects allowing the viewer’s fantasy to independently add some scenes to the pictorial structure.”


Anneke Hodel-Onstein:

“My mind revolves around images and sounds, with both give me guidance and stability. Abstract paintings help to shed irrelevancies, as their purpose is not to represent anything special, but rather to disclose what is behind them. Fragments and impressions of reality … being deeply ingrained in nature … and my very personal history.”
