Gottfried Helnwein Retrospective Exhibition
Albertina Museum, Vienna…

This exhibition will display about 200 works from 1969 to the present.

Exhibition opening: May 24th, 2013
closes: October 13th, 2013

"Well, the world is a haunted house, and Helnwein at times is our tour guide through it. Not all of Gottfried's work is on a canvas. A lot of it is the way he's approached life. And it doesn't take someone knowing him to know that. You take one look at the paintings and you say "this guy has been around." You can't sit in a closet - and create this. This level of work is earned. As an artist my strongest reaction to Helnwein's work is that it challenges me to be better at what I do. There are very few people that achieve utter excellence in what they do. And I think that Gottfried Helnwein is certainly one of those people."

Ich glaube du bist Deutscher

Deine Bilder haben alle irgendwie das Thema Kinder und Krieg.
Dieses Thema wird von vielen Künstlern verdängt.
Deine Bilder wirken erschreckend auf mich als Pacifist.
Nein nicht Abstossend... eher aufrüttelnd.
Ich hoffe das es nicht deine Kindheit ist, die du auf diese Weise verarbeitest.

Wow wow wow!! Your work is out of this world! Unbelievable stuff! Watching and waiting for more
One of the most evocative galleries I've ever seen. You are truly the definition of a master. Unparalleled in style, concept and execution.
