With is unmistakable ‘Glitch Style’ Georg Pummer combines realistic portraits with digital aesthetics. This unusual painting technique was created by his meticulous way of working and attention to detail. The fine colour distortions and pixel disturbances seem like a flicker of screens that triggers interference from classic portrait painting and digital portrait photography.
Georg Pummer's works are a painterly interpretation of digital photographic motifs and symbolise the fusion between tradition and technology. They are also a reflection of progress and transience. In his artistic cosmos, contrasts are an integral part of his creative work. Absolute beauty and youth as well as imperfection and decay - all these conditions are subject to change and thus belong to the symbol of the Vanitas.
For the artist, even infinity is part of a time-limited cycle. To illustrate this state of affairs, he works with different layers of paint, highlighting different facets of his portraits. These works therefore act as a snapshot of an existence before the colour-bound manifestation of human representations slowly dissolving into individual colour particles - because nothing is forever...
From this, the title "Nothing is Forever" is derived for his current creative cycle. The focus is on portraits that at the same time reflect beauty and transience. The series "Deep Reflections" in this catalogue deals with the profound dialogue between portrait and viewer, in which the portraits convey certain emotions... or is it the viewer's own feelings that are reflected in the portrait?
