We are pleased to present our painter Harry Ergott :
The Austrian painter Harry Ergott takes his inspiration from the proponents of modernism, particularly abstract expressionists, and from studying traditional genres such as portraiture. His paintings represent an accomplished symbiosis of his various artistic influences. Since his studies as a graphic artist, Harry Ergott has drawn on art history and the most varied techniques to find his own way. His journey of self-expression began in music studios, we can say that Musicians shaped him as an artist. He harnesses the melodies of the human form and channels them onto his canvas. In art school Higher Graphical Federal Education and Research Institute of Vienna, he gained an appreciation for the architecture of the human body sculpted into life. His inspiration is coming from the emerging of the Fin-de-Siècle artistic movement as masters set the body free from formalism with a pictorial work based on spontaneity.
“My Nudes research is a study in self-control versus resisting the desire for impetuous escape, the balance between absolute control and raw emotion, or the tipping point between calm and chaos.
I have a deep affection for my models who are exclusively women. Once they’re settled in the desired pose, they become “objects” of worship for me. Each brushstroke gradually connects me with them and it’s this link I try to show through. My series called “Nudes” represents my relationship with Woman which I’m inviting you to discover through my paintings.“
The series « Figurative » by Harry Ergott
In his series “Figurative“, Harry Ergott focuses on modern women: self-determined, smart and strong. They are placed in multi-layered abstract spaces.
The coloring, which defies reality, also signals otherworldliness and invites the Collector to fathom the complex inner spirit of these characters.
The series « Nudes » by Harry Ergott
“I’ve been drawing and painting nudes from living models for many years. All these years of practice have allowed me to gain an excellent basis on which to interact with the subject, which sometimes imposes itself and sometimes withdraws.”
