EITHER OR

The workshop EITHER OR with the “Kunstklassen” (art classes) of the secondary school Dominicus-von-Linprun-Gymnasium Viechtach is led by artist Richard Vogl and art educator Britta Wahlers. It will take place on Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30, 2022 in the premises of the artists’ residence.

The students will have the opportunity to work with special oil pastels and specially created backgrounds. In the course, different approaches will be presented and carried out, starting from spontaneous sketching through pictorial condensation to painting. The focus is on the own will to express and the demands of the image itself. The work of the students will then be presented in the scope of a joint exhibition context on April 30, 2022 from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. at SCHIESSLHAUS AiR.

EITHER OR is a cooperation project of the SCHIESSLHAUS AiR with the KUNSTKLASSE of the Dominicus-von-Linprun-Gymnasium Viechtach. It is sponsored by the Stiftung van de Loo, Munich.

RICHARD VOGL

The painter and draftsman Richard Vogl was born in 1952 in Furth im Wald. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Today he lives and works in Bernhardswald and Munich. His paintings, especially those of recent years, are characterized by an almost childlike lightheartedness. The figures rest in themselves, often they are alone, but do not seem lonely at all, rather quietly amused. (...) For him, says the artist, a picture is not a projection screen for ideas, but “a growing counterpart that only gradually condenses into the 'necessary picture' through dialogue.” So it's all about the process, which he describes as a kind of argument or even dispute. “Basically, I hope to paint the picture I didn't know I wanted to paint.”
