Fabian Knecht changes patterns of perception and action, transgresses art concepts and power structures, and questions social relations and norms by countering them with strong and provocative images.

Simon Czapla

Silver Threads & Golden Needles
This volume offers for the first time an in-depth look at a number of series by the young painter Simon Czapla. Whilst the classic portrait is currently undergoing a new interpretation in which the familiar contemplation unexpectedly turns into observation, the series – to be completed by 2013 – with its opulently staged, expressive scenery and portraits, opens up Czapla’s cryptic view of a reality shaped by transformations. In  addition to a fascinating wealth of invention and a skilfulness characteristic of the old masters, all of the works are linked by the momentum of a provocative confusion.
