Rosz, Martin

Regular price €20,00

“Everything Martin Rosz creates is a vestige of his own life, the search for his lost being. Seeing, experiencing, reflecting, making conscious — and to transpose all this into images and words: an endless, outward directed inner monologue made visible. What emerges is not the ‘art’ Alexander Dorner put in quotation marks, but rather self-testimonials, fragmentary traces of a tortuous path of life, coded notes, for the deciphering of which the key is given, impressions which an extremely vulnerable sensibility has received and acted upon, meditations on coming and going. Martin Rosz, who has worn many masks for protection, for whom art is not ornament but a necessity of live that makes the actually intolerable, the absurdity of existence, tolerable by naming it, does not create pictures for museums; but to show them there anyway is expedient.” - Karl Ruhrberg
