Herbert Pfostl is a contemporary Austrian artist who paints animals, plants, saints, ghosts, ships.
I love his work. All of his figures seem to have been thrown into the fire, and finally saved from the fire. Pfostl’s work has the textural quality of relics.
Hearts, devils and towers are ashes.
Go see Pfostl show in Brooklyn at Observatory.
