The Austrian artist Bernhard Buhmann has his solo show at Carbon 12 gallery, Dubai, titled “The Chaser, the Ambusher and the Fickle”. Buhmann studied painting and sociology at the University of Applied Arts (Austria) and the University of Vienna (Austria). His paintings are spirits of the times, sensitive mirrors of the stages of everyday life. The spectrum of protagonists is commensurately broad, a motley crew ranging from clowns and creatures of fantasy, to bizarre flying machines and beyond, all the way to colourful abstractions. All of the periods and various subjects of work are characterised by questioning the (re)construction of identity and performative.
