Michael Wegerer

Vienna, Austria

Michael Wegerer's artistic practice is deeply rooted in the exploration of printmaking and its sculptural extension, with the inherent tension between repetition and originality serving as a metaphor for a broader social and cultural context.

In the dynamic interplay between tradition and innovation, his work seeks a nuanced dialogue between materiality and perception, and in recent years the focus has shifted to the tension between colour, form and space. These overlaps become fertile ground for questioning and redefining the boundaries of the artwork itself. With this in mind, his works often deal with themes such as memory, identity and everyday, seemingly banal things and circumstances, inviting a reflective and immersive experience.

His multifaceted oeuvre sometimes includes a strong reference to the aesthetics of modernism. Starting from basic geometric shapes, he deals in his works with the principle of the serial, which is also central to screen printing, and the relationship between colour, rhythm and movement. The interaction between the viewer and the work of art also plays an important role, as does the idea of experiencing the respective work anew again and again by changing one’s own point of view.

Since 2003, Wegerer's works have been on display in numerous national and international exhibitions and collections. In the course of several international residencies and studies in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, China, Australia and New Zealand he has been developing experimental and versatile screen printing techniques since 2006. Michael now lives and works in Vienna.

The idea of this series of works is to deal with the formal the formal language of geometric concrete art, but also with the spontaneous painterly gesture. The works each play with effects of Op-Art (Optical-Art) by folding and creasing the sheets along precisely defined lines and colour transitions to form paper reliefs. The three-dimensional design of these sheets of paper invites the viewer to change the perspective several times and to look at and explore the work from different sides.

This series of works is not only a continuation of his well-known folded paper works, but also a significant step in a new direction. Wegerer used a specially developed method that allowed him to create abstract visual worlds enriched with texts. These texts are generated by artificial intelligence and integrated into the artwork so that two images can be interconnected simultaneously.
