Matthias Noggler

Matthias Noggler’s artistic practice reflects the cultural-historical functions and ideological content of images by means of various painterly styles and techniques. These references range from traditional Folk Art to classical Renaissance compositions as well as contemporary digital media and documentary photography. His paintings seamlessly unite these disparate sources, questioning the connections between image and social space (as well as their shaping through gender and class hierarchies) and, not least, addressing the socio-culturally conditioned politics of vision itself.
