Hundertwasser

  1. 1. FRIEDENSREICH HUNDERTWASSER1928-2000AUSTRIAN - TRANSAUTOMATISM
  2. 2. Hundertwasser shares his thoughts:Paintings for me are gateways, which enable me, if I have been successful, toopen them into a world which is both near and far for us, to which we have noadmission, in which we find ourselves, but which we cannot perceive, which isagainst the real worldAnd so I have succeeded in throwing windows openHow I succeeded is difficult to explainOn no account by force, nor by calculation, nor by intelligence, nor necessarilyby intuition, but almost as though sleep-walking.That means keeping oneself readyThat means eliminating the will, eliminating the intelligence, eliminating"wanting to do better", eliminating ambitionI should perhaps like to be known as the magician of vegetation or somethingsimilar. We are in need of magicI fill a picture until it is full with magic, as one fills up a glass with waterEverything is so infinitely simple, so infinitely beautiful.
  3. 3. TransautomatismTransautomatism is a modern style of painting,founded by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. It is a kindof surrealism, focusing on the viewers fantasyrather than an objective interpretation. Differentpeople see different things in the same picture. Theartists intention is less pertinent to the endexperience, therefore, than how the viewer choosesto interpret it. Transautomatism is based on thedifferent styles which Hundertwasser developed,e.g. spirals and drops.Transautomatism is about Hundertwassers theorythat straight lines are godless and immoral. That ashumans we have lost our connection to the organicgeometry of nature by forcing ourselves to exist inboxes as homes. He believed in the fluidity of lineand shape hence his architectural and painting style.Being educated in a Montessori school his self-directed learning came from nature and thereforehis drive to return to color and organic states.
