Simon Quendler is a conceptual painter who makes his own paint using complicated methods.
Using unorthodox techniques, Simon Quendler repeatedly manages to pursue new artistic paths and reveal the core of things. He aims to break through the boundaries of the artistic spectrum and show new patterns of seeing by these means. For this purpose he has developed special methods in his Viennese atelier, with which he releases the essence from substances.
1.) The solids are crushed.
2.) Organic and anorganic materials are sorted into groups.
3.) The forge (furnace) is heated with charcoal.
4.) The materials are melted or liquefied in a graphite melting pot.
5.) They are then cooled in water, in order to break the structure.
6.) Then the materials are freed from impurities (removal of ash).
The art of mixing
The mixing of art
Simon Quendler’s painting is revolves around the destruction and recreation of the space. He experiments with various different materials, releases suspended particles with the help of filter systems and is tireless in his search for the original colour and the original space. He avails of chemical and biological processes, with which he creates targeted reactions on the corpus of the picture, whose end result cannot always be predetermined.
The work is created
1.) The canvas is prepared.
2.) The structural mass of horn and leather is built up and structured with volcanic ash.
3.) Drying phase
4.) First painting steps are taken with organic and anorganic paint.
5.) Organic painting materials are blown into the picture.
6.) Dry anorganic painting heaps are formed on the corpus of the picture.
7.) The fine-tuning of the painting begins.
The art reacts
1.) After the painting process, the first reactive chemical is poured in.
2.) Thorough mixing takes place.
3.) After a sufficient reaction time, the second reactive chemical is trickled onto the anorganic painting heaps as a binder.
4.) After a drying phase, the first emulsion layers are applied.
5.) Now the fats bind naturally with the underlying structure.
6.) Circulation takes place, because the materials are mixed through again.
7.) The second emulsion layer is applied and painted into the work.
8.) The last reactions complete the work of art.
