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."

“Keep your hands and feet inside the cart” he said, while checking my seat belt. He smiled at me with the kind of contorted smile only a shapeshifter that isn’t quite familiar with his human form is capable of. The corners of his mouth extending to his ears and the bottom lip hanging down to his chest, the lower exposed jaw unhinged itself and dropped to the ground. He either didn’t notice, or else he didn’t mind. “I am keeping an eye on you” he gargled now, unaware perhaps that this is just a figure of speech among humans, he literally plucked out his left eye and placed it carefully on the dash. “Here we go” ‐ he gave the cart a little push from behind, the wheels ran over the jaw with a noticeable crunch. The doors to hyperspace got bumped open and I found myself ascending a steep incline in a fluorescent tube filled with noisy rainbow colored lights. Wavelengths beyond human capacity to comprehend were tugging on my nerves like barbed hooks. There seemingly was no end,

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. drawing by Otto Rapp "Ego Bird Fish Nesting Ground" To
