Biography

Gunter Damisch was born in 1958 in Steyr in Upper Austria. Since 1992 he is a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. He lives and works in Vienna and Freydegg in Upper Austria.

Gunter Damisch works as a painter, draftsman and graphic designer but in recent years he has turned his attention increasingly to sculpture, developing a highly personal and complex cosmological view of the world. This world is inhabited by a large number of invented beings that can be ascribed to either a microcosmic biological or a macrocosmic spiritual world.

These beings drift in the streams of air, water, earth and fire emerging from a universe that has been subjected to a never-ending process of change by the creator. Gunter Damisch’s “Flämmler”, lucid amblers between time and space, can be seen in this context as metaphors for the fleetingness of human existence, at least for its consummation in a processual dimension.
