The Artists of Gugging
The Artists of Gugging at Ricco/Maresca Gallery. "...This exhibition focuses on the dynamic and emotionally innovative work currently being produced at the Gugging House of Artists outside of Vienna, Austria. Since 1981, Gugging Artists have gained an internationally renowned reputation due to the high quality of their drawings, paintings, photographs and writing. This aesthetically complex and dynamic body of work is drawn from nine of Gugging’s most impressive residents who, through emotional intricacy and technical precision, have carved a path becoming some of the most important representatives of contemporary Art Brut. Reductive forms are placed in sophisticated compositions creating an overwhelmingly affective oeuvre of art that marries talent, imagination, innocence, and ingenuity."
