Julian Fickler “The Sun Smells Loud” at Kunstraum: Morgenstraße

In June 2010, our first “five in a row” started with a show by Julian Fickler; now, a year later, Julian is back with new works. While last year’s paintings were expressive, gaudy pieces in oil, Julian’s new works are muted, seemingly introspective, produced with watercolour on cloth, with the shapes of supplemental stretcher bars subtly poking through the cloth from behind. What they share is Julian’s commitment to the painterly experiment, to the expressive or constructive treatment of the panel.
