I am looking forward to this 3-person exhibition, together with some good personal artist friends of mine. Organized by Yvette Endrijautzki in her brand-new gallery Nautilus in Wuppertal, Germany.
Select text from Yvette's original article:
In conjunction with Wuppertals socio-cultural event "Langer Tisch" (meaning "Long Table"), the Nautilus Studio will lay an exceptional table: the "Traum Tafel" which literally translates to "Dream Table", an expression with double meaning: an abundantly set table or a vision board, a tool to reinforce and manifest daily affirmations.
Parisian painter and furniture designer Liba Waring Stambollion, together with Viennese painter and graphic artist Otto Rapp and US artist Jeff Mihalyo (Seattle), will exhibit a series of their works at the Nautilus Studio.
Partly visionary and haunting, partly surreal and dreamy, the fabulous work of the three artists fuse into one wholeness, one dream work.

A selection of artwork from Austrian Artist Otto Rapp - Paintings, Drawings, some Mixed Media and Intaglio. The works are in no particular order, created over a time-frame of 40+ years. Otto Rapp draws his influence from the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism.
He speaks of his art:
ABOUT MY WORKS
"These are universal archetypes that are found deep inside a collective subconscious. While seemingly alien and strange, they are also strangely familiar. I take the viewer into an area that they had entered before only in another existence, or in dreams. It is a 'method in this madness' but everything is created by exclusion of conscious leadership. The work is growing seemingly by itself, like ice flowers on a windowpane."
