ANTON FRANZ HÖGER
...is a member of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, founded by five writers and painters, including Ernst Fuchs. Although he graduated in the late 70s of the last century, he fully dedicated himself to painting only in 2000.
”Vienna School“, Höger’s artistic origin, is characterized by unreal, dreamy motifs in opulent Mannerist style, elab orate techniques of the old Italian and Dutch masters. Despite the admiration towards the artistic finesse of the old masters and eccentric and dynamic Baroque painting that can be seen as a natural basis of Höger’s art or Malgeschichte. His paintings contain the essence of philosophical, and go beyond the ‘pure techniques’ of his painting style.
Höger’s work deals with social issues, such as the present position of women in the society, or the attempts at the destruction of man manifested by a low-quality TV programme.
He also creates thematic corpuses, such as integration, participation and power of the media, as well as rewritings of history. Höger’s paintings are the mirror of our present existence.
