Josef Felix Müller «Malerei»
This publication has been released on the occasion of the exhibition «Malerei» at the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen. Josef Felix Müller Müller records a moment, a spirit of light, on his field trips in the forest («Wald») or on a path to a spring («Quelle»). Having only cursorily checked the images upon snapping them, in his studio the artist translates a small-format print-out into a large-format painting. Digital technology creates new challenges for the painter with the immediate visibility of the captured image, the exaggerated luminance of the display or its fundamental translation into numeric codes, which effects the camera's interpretation of the view. With a text by Gianni Jetzer.
