Oscar Bronner (born in 1943 in Haifa/Israel, living and working in Vienna since 1948 ), combines objective representation in his painting with free painterly articulation . Since the nineteen-seventies, he has been developing the pictorial motif out of the colour, whether flowers, landscape, figure or abstract forms. Decisive here is the processual moment, which is pre-eminent over motif content. The artist comprehends the canvas as paint palette, allowing the picture to be generated out of its basic coloured substances. Having worked at first with the brush, since the mid-nineteen-eighties Bronner has been composing his canvases with his fingers as well, placing the picture substrate in a horizontal position relative to the painting action. Paintings created in this way testify to an earnest and wholehearted approach and are simultaneously a commitment to the elemental criteria of this medium.
