Vigorous Physical Exertion

The book on the exhibition at SCHAUWERK in Sindelfingen provides a multifaceted insight into the work of Austrian artist Sabrina Haunsperg (*1980). It presents works from the last ten years as well as some fresh from the studio that are ­presented to the public for the first time. Sabrina Haunsperg creates colorful, dynamic and mostly large-format paintings using different techniques and materials. She attaches great importance to the use of high-quality paints, which she mixes ­according to traditional recipes. She applies the paint to the canvas with a brush, pen, spray gun, or by pouring it with vigorous physical exertion. ­Careful planning and experimental curiosity result in superimposed paint surfaces, interweaving structures of paint and energetic color explosions. The results are paintings that captivate the viewer with their exciting relationship between image ­surface and depth. Intangible spaces are created that leave room for various connotations. From 2001 to 2008, Sabrina Haunsperg studied painting at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Helmut ­Federle, and was a master student of Herbert Brandl; she currently lives and works in Düsseldorf.
