Franz West Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1947 - d. 2012

Franz West (16 February 1947 – 25 July 2012) was an Austrian artist.

West was born on 16 February 1947. His father was a coal dealer, his mother a dentist who took her son with her on art-viewing trips to Italy. West did not begin to study art seriously until he was 26, when, between 1977 and 1983, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna with Bruno Gironcoli.
Work

West began making drawings around 1970 before moving on to painted collages incorporating magazine images that showed the influence of Pop Art. His art practice started as a reaction to the Viennese Actionism movement has been exhibited in museums and galleries for more than three decades.[4] Over the last 20 years he had a regular presence in big expositions like Documenta and the Venice Biennale.

West's artwork is typically made out of plaster, papier-mâché, wire, polyester, aluminium and other, ordinary materials. He started to produce paintings, but then turned to collages, sculptures, portable sculptures called "Adaptives" or "Fitting Pieces", environments and furniture – "welded metal chairs and divans, some minimally padded and upholstered in raw linen." For his early sculptures, West often covered ordinary objects—bottles, machine parts, pieces of furniture and other, unidentifiable things—with gauze and plaster, producing "lumpy, grungy, dirty-white objects".

In the late 1990s, West turned to large-scale lacquered aluminum pieces, the first (and several after) inspired by the forms of Viennese sausages, as well as the shapes of the Adaptives. With their monochrome colors and irregular patchwork surfaces, these works were also meant for sitting and lying.

Franz West In his artistic works, Franz West explores the various possibilities of sculptural objects and searches for a convincing rationale for their aesthetic design. In doing so, the question of the logic behind the design plays a central role. He uses a very sensuous approach that confers on the objects an almost magical and mysterious allure. This radicalised sensuousness creates a fascinating and confusing world in which the supposedly clear connections are embedded in a complex and simultaneous structure of diverse associations. The viewer is challenged to immerse themselves in this world and explore the complexity of the references. ------------------------------------------------- FRANZ WEST & ALBERT OEHLEN (1947 Wien 2012) (Krefeld 1954–lebt in Bühler und Segovia) Ohne Titel. 1991.

"Man muss die Kunst nicht verstehen, man muss sich nur mit ihr beschäftigen." Franz West Franz West erforscht in seinen künstlerischen Arbeiten verschiedenen Möglichkeiten plastischer Objekte und sucht nach einer überzeugenden Begründung für ihre ästhetische Gestaltung. Dabei spielt die Frage nach der Logik hinter der Formgebung eine zentrale Rolle. Er nutzt eine sehr sinnliche Herangehensweise, die den Objekten eine fast magische und mysteriöse Anziehungskraft verleiht. Durch diese radikalisierte Sinnlichkeit entsteht eine faszinierende, fast verwirrende Welt, in der die vermeintlich klaren Zusammenhänge in eine komplexe und simultane Struktur von verschiedenen Bezügen eingebettet sind. Der Betrachter wird herausgefordert, in diese Welt einzutauchen und die Vielschichtigkeit der Referenzen zu erkunden.

Amongst these sheets one sees ornamentation and colouring reminiscent of Viennese Jugendstil ot of Hundertwasser, as well as the fantastic-surreal atmosphere and mannered gestures of the Wiener Phanstasten, and faces with the „surrealist beards“ typical of Dali or Leherb. However, essentially such borrowings are neither stylistic takeovers nor altercations with trendsetting ideals; instead they are far more ironic commentaries on the images he encountered, interpreted in a very personal manner. A distanced and ironic reaction to the artistic formulations of others, in particular to those propounded with such vehemence and dogmatism, would remain a key force behind West‘s visual output.

              Franz West Untitled 1976 mixed media on paper; framed 23 x 34 cm signed and dated on the reverse: West 76 directly from the artist; since then private property, Austria For Franz West, the early 1970s were defined by his struggle for recognition. Artistically, he explored a wide variety of directions, such as Conceptual Art, Marcel Duchamp and Cy Twombly, and Minimal Art. "In the works of the 1970s, you can see how he worked through the ‘isms’ – they have an incredible range" (Klaus Albrecht Schröder (ed.), The Beginning. Kunst in Österreich 1945 bis 1980, ["Art in Austria 1945 to 1980"] exhibition catalogue, Albertina modern, Vienna 2020, p. 578). Collages form an essential part of his early work. Franz West uses found pictorial material, often consisting of advertising brochures, which he defamiliarises by painting additions to them and painting over them, thus giving it new meaning. Echoes of Dadaist collages can be detected, as can Franz West’s admiration for the Pop Art artist Richard Hamilton. "The faces found in the advertising materials are used as ready-mades" (Veit Loers, Franz West, Cologne 2006, p, p. 20), in that they are stripped of their previous function and placed in a completely new context of meaning. Four naked figures, white painted bodies with collaged heads, are standing in front of a red theatre curtain. Thus, we perceive them not as being in front of an abstract background, but in a stage setting. The heads have been painted over in part, giving them a "pitted" look; "half-profiles become foreshortened profiles à la Picasso" (Loers, p. 21 f.), whereby the faces can be seen simultaneously from the front and in profile. Franz West thus intervenes in the collage in a rigid painterly manner. We see two male bodies with ejaculating penises, while the female genitals and nipples are highlighted in colour. A woman’s head on a male body provides additional irritation. Franz West’s assemblages have in fact little to do with conventional collages, as right from the start they are motivated by content rather than form. Here, the eternal smile of the advertising figures appears isolated and is, in its pointless cheerfulness, "frozen into ludicrousness in its self-referentiality" (Loers, p. 21). (Sophie Cieslar)

West 84 inscribed in the lower center: Lisa d Galerie Hummel, Vienna; since then private property, Austria Christine Marcel & Marc Godfrey (ed.), Franz West. exhibition catalogue, Centre Pompidou, Paris/Tate Modern, London, Paris/London 2018/19, ill. p. 65; Franz West. Works 1970-1985, Collection Hummel, Years spent together, Vienna 2018, ill. p. 168. In the 1980s, Franz West was championed by the gallery owner Peter Pakesch and his first international exhibitions received considerable attention. The final breakthrough was imminent. Parallel to the Passstücke ("Adaptives") that he had been developing since the mid-1970s, he was still creating collages. The surface in this striking horizontal format is given rhythmic structure by means of cardboard pieces glued on top of one another. The application of pink paint in the lower half creates a kind of horizon line on which an ostrich – a colourful transfer – strolls in the centre of the picture. To the right, the pink moves upwards, forming a kind of interior space in which a woman stands in a dancing pose with an "Adaptive" wrapped around her neck like a feather boa. Pink is a colour that the artist also likes to use in his later sculptures. He is probably inspired here by the shade of pink used in tooth models and denture impressions in dentistry: Franz West's mother was a dentist. The result is "a combination of monochrome and reduction with small pictures that serve to satisfy the need for embellishment, thereby appealing to longings and visions of happiness" (Klaus Albrecht Schröder (ed.), The Beginning. Kunst in Österreich 1945 bis 1980, exhibition catalogue, Albertina modern, Vienna 2020, p. 581). The postcard-like landscape motif on the left side of the picture also plays a role here. It opens up a further associative space. Cut-out figures and cute transfers are placed in absurd settings like actors in stage-like spaces. Painted and collaged parts, figuration and abstraction collide in a "theatre of the absurd " (Veit Loers, Franz West, Cologne 2006, p. 22). (Sophie Cieslar)
