Simone Gutsche-Sikora paints what her hearts dictates.
Boundless, without style or subject constraints. In her new studio in the town of Steyr, she finds the necessary creative freedom. She loves spacious surface and prefers to work oil frames combined with different materials.
Her paintings show lived stories, are exibited in international galleries and convey a grasping nearness. These dimensions of artistic creativity are also expressed in her designwork for decorative hardware, which not only makes elegant and dynamic but mystic and sensual.
For stylish dining and fine table culture.
Simone Gutsche-Sikora created a perfect symbiosis between picture and porcelain painting. An elegant an creative combination of two different artistic fields. Her paintings, or rather parts of them, form the base for the porcelain plate designs.
The result is a distinctive dining culture, when the picture on the wall is reflected on the covered dinner table, a magnificent experience for the eye.
Günther Edlinger, like other artists of the "sunset lounge" about innovative contact with unusual materials, technical perfection and aesthetic refinement with the amalgamation and imitate of media.
Günther Edlinger processed expressive-passionately impressions of an observed tragic death by burning (gallery of the city of Salzburg "purgatory" in 1998) in big canvas pictures. Another picture series stands out through the integration of full liquid containers in a picturesque connection ("aqua-pox") in which clear glue layers play an important role.
On the 23rd of June the magnificent exposition of the artist Simone Gutsche Sikora took place in a small village on the river Enns. Once again it was a special kind of celebration, as we know from previous years with Gutsche Sikora.
The organization of the artist left nothing to be desired and made this evening an unforgettable experience.
The chatelaine Countess Adelheid Hoyos gave Gutsche Sikora this magical location for that day, resulting in a perfect symbiosis of contemporary art (sculptures and paintings by ART Gutsche) and history (best known owner of the late 19th century, Josef Werndl).
In addition to the artist we could also see, Helmut Schlader with his Alpine caviar, exquisite garden furniture by Astrid Pinecker-Steiner, chocolate manufacturer Bachhalm, Kny Design Austria with the first ART Gutsche lamps, Manfred Wimmer with salmon products from Stefan Palsson, the winery of Hermann Moser, BMW Knöbl and Hinterberger beverage vending machines, which presented the first ART Gutsche coffee machine.
The guests were welcomed by Silvia Eichlberger and Dr. med. Klaus Dorninger led through the evening.
Another highlight was the performance of the Friesian stallion Zen Panhuys from the house of Friesen Exclusive Prexl, who carried the pianist Katharina Hinterberger to her piano, before letting the guests dive into another world with their concert. Even the grand piano was no ordinary, but a 111 year old Bösendorfer, (limited Johann Strauss Edition) which was for Sale afterwards.
As a culmination, Gutsche Sikora surprised her guests with the Musical actress Misha Kovar.
An audience of art and business (including actress Andrea Lamatsch with her husband Manfred Lielacher, as well as the former press spokesman of Helmut Zilk Councilor Prof. Fred Vavrousek with wife Ulla) was impressed by the performances and the vernissage of a different kind.
Once again, one can say - ART Gutsche has honored its name by the unusual presentation of an exposition.
