Exhibition at the GALLERY WOHNSALON Schwertgasse

Exhibition space for exploring the world of art: Gallery at the Wohnsalon, 1010 Vienna, Schwertgasse 4 likes to transform itself into a gallery. Consequently, art is staged within the midst of life – not on walls of empty space. Reinhold Ponesch from Bregenz is such a discovery. His big scale paintings are the grip into the full human life. Which the artist, residing and working in New York and Vienna, has not least done because of his time in the special forces ‚Cobra‘. Thrilling for aesthetes and collectors with a view to the values structure of art. (Text: Newsletter Wohnsalon)

Ausstellungsfläche für Entdeckungen der Kunstwelt: Die Galerie im Wohnsalon, 1010 Schwertgasse 4 verwandelt sich gern in eine Galerie. So wird Kunst mitten im Leben inszeniert - nicht an Wänden im leeren Raum. Reinhold Ponesch aus Bregenz ist so eine solche Entdeckung. Seine Großformate sind der Griff ins volle Menschenleben. Den hat der Künstler, der in New York und Wien lebt und arbeitet, nicht zuletzt in seiner Zeit bei der Sondereinheit Cobra getan. Spannend für Ästheten und Sammler mit Blick auf die Wertstruktur von Kunst. (Text: Newsletter Wohnsalon)
