Sparkling visual worlds crash out of dense undergrowth

The exhibition of Upper Austrian artist Silvia Sun at Thiele Gallery in Linz is well worth seeing.
A bird has picked up a homunculus. Just like the doomed earthworm he is dithering in it’s pecker. „Is not controllable“, one can read in the avian’s speech bubble. “By humans”, complements a belling deer.
And a spectator who precisely surveys the avian tableau „The Great Escape“, one of artist Silvia Sun’s paintings that are currently shown at the Thiele Gallery in Linz, is able to discover a further curiosity.
Characters defining “Not sold yet” and an arrow refer to a glaring red dot which is placed in the
painting’s right bottom corner, as a simple formal element with regards to content.

Apropos: it is no wonder that those typical red points of sale are accumulating even before the actual vernissage. In Silvia Sun’s visual world powerful colors and drawings, satire, ecologically competent ambiguity, poetry, pop-quotations and tough as nails statements are unified to a convincing ensemble.
Expressionism meets concreteness, exuberant visual narration encounters atmosphere. Every leaf and each branch condense to “undergrowth”, to brakes and brushes, which is most notably seasoned with botanical impressions from Costa Rica. In response to the OÖN-question what she regards as most important in her work, the artist, also a graduated Historian, replies: “To transport the tension between
nature and civilization”.

From the mighty „Traumstein“ with its primeval saurian and swan in oil and edding on canvas, to all over printed miniatures with containter facades: Silvia Sun’s work blasts an abundance of association in our minds that heartily light even the longest fuse.

Exhibition Silvia Sun: Galerie Thiele, "Undergrowth", bis 20. Mai 2013
