PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Martha Jungwirth

Martha Jungwirth (*1940), the great loner of the Austrian art scene, is probably the country’s most famous infamous artist. This comprehensive monograph accompanies her first major retrospective, presenting works from five decades. Jungwirth’s approach to painting serves as a missing link between American abstract expressionism and European informal painting. The exhibition catalogue guides through the individual periods of her oeuvre and reveals Jungwirth’s work as an investigation into the fundamental principles of painting, navigating between the poles of gesture, form, line and colour.
